I don't mean to be a prophet of doom. We don't have to throw in the towel. But unless a healthy percentage of traditionalists wakes up and starts fighting back, our grandchildren will not inherit the blessings of liberty or the luxury of a society built on the rock solid foundation of Judeo-Christian values.
I don't quite understand how there can be such apathy when we see evidence of cultural assaults and the astonishing intolerance of the culture annihilators every day. Don't tell me that the aggressors merely want equal rights or societal respect. It appears they will not be satisfied until traditionalists are muzzled and Christian expression and worship are relegated to the privacy of our homes and churches, if that.
It's not just that our societal norms are changing, it's the radical means by which these changes are coming about.
-- the audacity of the Massachusetts high court rewriting its constitution to redefine marriage and its cavalier treatment of the legislative branch;
-- the lawlessness of public officials legitimizing homosexual marriage;
-- the brazenness, and frankly, depravity of the recent "National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers";
-- the Supreme Court's disallowance of theology scholarships;
-- the California Supreme Court's decision that the employee healthcare plans of Catholic charities must provide access to contraception;
-- the lawsuit seeking to expel the Boy Scouts from public parklands in San Diego because of their adherence to traditional values;
-- that President Bush and others resisting a fundamental revision of the thousands-year-old institution of marriage are accused of political opportunism, initiating a culture conflict, and hatefulness;
-- that Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the "100 Women of the Century";
-- That Senator Kerry actually boasted that America-unfriendly foreign leaders prefer him as president.
I'm just scratching the surface, but based on these examples alone, how can there be such irresponsible lethargy among the "majority" in this country? It's time they wake up.
