The above title is from another good post from my favorite townhall.com columnist John Hawkins—here’s an excerpt:
1) A Moral Slide: We have fetishized diversity, tolerance, compassion, and niceness so much that those traits practically make up the core of a left-wing pseudo-religion because they’re among the very few areas where we’ve morally surpassed previous generations of Americans. However, it’s worth asking how you think modern Americans compare to previous generations on traits like charity, chastity, duty, Godliness, honesty, honor, industriousness, respect for authority, work ethic, and self-reliance. Most people would agree that modern Americans don’t even come close to measuring up.
A large part of the blame for that travesty rests on the shoulders of the Christian church. Most churches in this country have become complacent and are all too content to preach to the aging choir rather than adopt modern methods of communication.
