What we see now is not slow moral decline. We are in rapid decline; an unstoppable finish which sinful Americans did not anticipate.
We have always been sinful in this country. But a thin veneer of Christianity helped many to redemption. Now that's all in the past. All the time we were warned. It didn't help. Now it's too late to reverse. Thankfully, each soul is answerable only to him-herself. The Church is comforting even down to the final days of the world. But far too many are selling the Church short. We can only expect a remnant to persevere in faith.
