I'm sure the French revolution provided De Tocqueville with direct knowledge of the inhumanity of man. An educated man in those days was well versed in the history of the world and all the cruelty of invaders and of slaughter in the name of empire.
It sounds like Paul is describing virtually every human being who ever lived, at least at some point in their lives. If they "did not like to retain God in their knowledge" then they can't "...[know] the righteous judgement of God". Right? It sounds to me like maybe 10% of humanity will be saved, according to Paul. Heaven must be a really small place.
There are no statistics on same sex marriage as yet. You'll need to address it in, say, another 30 years.
What makes you think the research is complete, accurate, and unbiased?
I think you misread Mike.
The heart of the problem is that parents have lost control of their children's upbringing. This is due to three things that have developed since the 50's-- Communication is universal, which means that parents can no longer decide what knowledge and ideas are or arenot appropriate for their child's personality and age. Other, faceless people are doing that. Children spend a lot of time separated from parents because so many families need or want two incomes. There is a guidance gap, and combined with the above change in communications, lack of parental control on knowledge and ideas is lost. A pre-school teacher is not a good substitute for a parent. The government has inserted itself between parent and child, which grows more as time goes on. One of the reasons why native Europeans have declining populations is that government has dissolved the power of the parent with regulations, but still holds the parent responsible for the socializing of their children. That's happening here, too. Who wants to be in that bind?

Down from when? The 50's? I would say that abortion, for instance is waaay up since the 50's. Is that better than sending the girl to aunt betty's 20 miles away and giving the baby up for adoption? Only a liberal would sat 'yes'.
Sean245 & Joe296 Gentlemen, my hat is off to you. Exactly so. And the phrase, "my hat is off to you" is a clue as to how old I am!
The problem was identified decades ago, and many times since. They didn't have any answers either. When you're driving a car that goes into a skid, you're very clear about it, but now you're just a passenger.
A defining characteristic of smart people is that they are fast learners. They'll keep quiet and their heads down until opportunities to fight back present themselves. Case in point--the resistance fighters in France, Poland, etc.
