The picture on the left is of Madonna and Brittany Spears just before they lip locked on national T.V. Isn’t that just great? Can you imagine this happening 50 years ago? This is how far we have slipped as a culture. This kind of perverted display does not represent what I believe. It does not reflect my values. It is NOT my culture. But just wait till I get going!
In this country, there have been 50 million abortions, since it became legalized. When we stop and think about those numbers it is holocaust that is beyond the pale. 50 million babies, killed in their mothers wombs. This act of murder has created a blood curse on America. Then there’s the late term, abortion procedure, which I’ve Blogged about before. This is where they induce labor, so that the babies head is actually outside the womb. Then they kill it in the most barbaric way, that I shudder to think about it and won’t describe it in detail here. The very fact that in the halls of our government there is debate on whether or not this procedure should be allowed, is yet another indicator of how fall we have fallen. This is NOT my culture. Our newly elected president made good on his promise to federally fund abortions, with tax payers money. He also went on the record saying, that a women shouldn’t be punished with a baby if she gets pregnant and doesn’t want the child. Isn’t that great? With our financial institutions crumbling and pressing problems in the Middle East, president Obama made sure that he passed a law that would kill more babies. He rushed to get this done in his first week in office. Why the rush Mr. President? Your actions represent a culture of death….
In California there was proposition 8 on the ballot. It was a vote to legitimize Gay marriage. It wasn’t passed. Even in California there were enough people who recognized that marriage is between one man and one woman. There were demonstrations by those who wanted the measure passed and in some areas the demonstrations got ugly. Eventually, Gay marriage will be passed and like Roe v Wade, it will be yet another line of demarcation that is erased from our culture. We have lost our moral bearings. We are a wandering ship, rudderless, in a sea of political correctness and moral relativism.
Last week during the inauguration, two rappers, went on and on in a ridiculous display of profane verbiage, in what we now embrace as an “art” form. However, others, like Quicny Jones describe the billion dollar Rap industry, as what it really is, “cursing with a beat.” Indeed the two guys made sure they used the “F” word, as many times as possible during their idiotic performance. Isn’t this great? They’re exercising their freedom of speech! How stimulating and uplifting!
On a closing note – no pun intended – let me say that 50 years ago Rehab centers, were few and far between. Now they’re advertised on our media and we make a big deal when celebrities, go on Oprah and gush about their addiction and how they overcame them. How many lives have been ruined by the drug cartels that continue to operate across our porous southern border. You would think that perhaps Mr. Bush or Mr. Obama might have made this a priority, stopping the illegal drugs that come into this country every day. In the case of Mr. Bush he ignored it, and instead went into Afghanistan where last year the opium harvest set new records. I wonder where all that money went? [Under the Taliban – whom are nothing more than a group of thugs – the opium harvest was eliminated.] Mr. Obama seems to think that it is more important to make sure abortions are federally funded rather than stopping the drug trade. I’m vexed. I don’t like what I’m seeing in this country. I don’t identify with much of it. It is not my culture…. It is a culture of death.
