To the Editor:
Granted, the general state of affairs in our country and the world is terrible. We truly live in a dangerous world. ISIS, Russia, Iran, North Korea and “home grown” terrorism are a serious threat and a clear and present danger.
Race relations haven’t been this bad in recent memory. Political divisions are so bad and hateful that they teeter on violent explosion.
Our police are under attack from the very people they risk their lives to protect. Christians can’t pray in schools or before sports events but taxpayer-funded Muslim prayer rooms are opening up in public schools.
Parents who object to young men who claim to be feeling their “feminine side” and who want to shower with their daughters and dress and undress in girls locker rooms are viewed as insensitive, prejudicial, and hateful bigots instead of moral people who are concerned about the safety of their children.
Anyone who believes in traditional marriage and biblical teachings on sodomy are labeled as hateful homophobes. Anyone who voted against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or voted for Donald Trump are dubbed “racists,” even if they are themselves black.
Good manners, mutual respect, and even respect for the elderly, common decency and generations of acceptable societal social norms and morality have practically been confined to the annals of history.
Divorce is routine and marriage is becoming rare. Sexual promiscuity and obscene, filthy and repugnant sexual experimentation have become normal and commonplace. It is morality itself that has become abnormal.
Out-of--wedlock pregnancies are now commonplace and abundant. Fathers who abandon their children and the mothers of their children are legion, especially in the African-American community. Having taxpayers pay to raise their children is now routine and viewed as an entitlement.
Cities, university campuses, some churches, entire counties and now even a few states routinely violate federal law by declaring “sanctuary cities” for “illegals,” to include even hardened and violent “criminal illegal aliens” without consequence. It’s become so bad that often illegal aliens who are in violation of federal law by even being here have access to valuable and expensive welfare and social benefits that the taxpayers who pay for them can’t themselves access.
It seems that just about everybody hates anyone and everyone who doesn’t agree with them. It goes on and on, but it’s important to remember that none of this started since January when Donald Trump became president. All of it flourished in the last eight years under the administration of Barack Obama. That’s the simple truth, and that’s a something that deserves to be “carved in stone” in the annals of history.
