Cultural Decline

Cultural DeclineTowards the end of the age society is to decline in morals, values, etc. There will be a huge rise in immorality, hedonism, humanism, situation ethics, and more. Men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, brutal, disobedient to parents, etc. See Matthew 24, II Timothy 3, Jude 18, and II Peter 3. Love will grow cold. Family values will be mocked. Entertainment will be perverse even for children. It will be “as the days of Noah.” And that describes the 21st Century.

The church-affiliated Texas Christian University has announced plans to allocate apartment housing on its Fort Worth campus for homosexual students and their supporters.

According to a report in the city's Star-Telegram newspaper, the school plans to open a section of the Tom Brown-Pete Wright apartments for "lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender students and allies."

The school also will have two living groups that are designated "Christian-based" and others for fine arts and other themes, the report said.

Now includes references to same-sex relationships

One of the nation's most prominent dictionary companies has resolved the argument over whether the term "marriage" should apply to same-sex duos or be reserved for the institution that has held families together for millennia: by simply writing a new definition.

"I was shocked to see that Merriam-Webster changed their definition of the word 'marriage,' a word which has referred exclusively to a contract between a man and a woman for centuries. It has now added same sex," YouTube user Eric B. noted to WND.

"The 1992 Webster's Dictionary does not mention same sex at all," he wrote.

He created a YouTube video illustrating his concerns, which has been embedded here:

Quieter Killings

More than 10 years after Oregon stoked fears when it became the first state in the nation to legalize physician-assisted suicide, Washington and Montana quietly followed suit in late 2008.

On Election Day, 58 percent of Washington voters approved a measure allowing terminally ill adults to obtain lethal prescriptions if they are deemed competent. Just two states away, a judge in Montana ruled in early December that physician-assisted suicides are legal in the state. That decision is likely to be appealed.

Parents outraged at public elementary's secretive 'coming out' event

SACRAMENTO, Calif. Some parents are shocked to find their children are learning to be homosexual allies and will participate in "Coming Out Day" at a public elementary school tomorrow - and they claim the school failed to notify parents.

One mother of a kindergartner who attends Faith Ringgold School of Art and Science, a K-8 charter school in Hayward, Calif., said she asked her 5-year-old daughter what she was learning at school.

The little girl replied, "We're learning to be allies."

DALLAS (Reuters) - Conservative U.S. Christians say the culture has gone to hell and it has taken the economy and Wall Street down with it.

It is a view which outsiders may find puzzling but has wide resonance in the U.S. heartland: the notion that moral decay and a lost sense of responsibility has brought on the worst banking and credit crisis since the Great Depression.

Such a view helps explain the unpopularity in conservative Christian circles -- which have a big influence on the Republican Party -- of a $700 billion bailout plan which the U.S. House of Representatives rejected on Monday, rocking financial markets.

Mainstreaming Blasphemy

Originally posted in July 2008

"Then Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do'" (Luke 12:34).

If you have been watching television recently, you may have seen a commercial for a movie titled, "Hamlet 2," which includes the song, "Rock Me, Sexy Jesus."

 

Here is an excerpt:

Rock me, rock me, rock me sexy Jesus

He died for our sins, you gotta believe us

Rock me, rock me, rock me sexy Jesus all night long.

 

In the movie, written and directed by gay filmmaker Andrew Fleming, a high school teacher writes a sequel to Shakespeare's drama, in which Jesus brings Hamlet back to life to perform in musicals.

Prepping Kids for Sex Change

Originally posted in July 2008

He has been called "demonic," "barbaric," and has been compared to Nazi doctors. And when you read about his work, it is easy to see why Americans are so outraged. Dr. Norman Spack is a pediatric endocrinologist at Boston Children's Hospital. Not long ago, he opened a clinic for what he terms "transgendered" children. Incredibly, he is giving kids as young as seven drugs that delay the onset of puberty - the first step in sex-change surgery when they are older.

Evolving Standards of Indecency

Originally posted in June 2008

The Supreme Court's barring of the death penalty for child rapists in Kennedy v. Louisiana underscores the hazards in the court's abandonment of moral absolutes in favor of "evolving standards of decency" and the court's unbridled arrogance in substituting its subjective judgment for the legislatively enacted will of the people.

In Kennedy, the court reversed the decision of the Louisiana Supreme Court to uphold the capital punishment of a convicted child rapist, holding that the Eighth Amendment's cruel and unusual punishment clause prohibits executing such offenders "where the crime did not result, and was not intended to result, in the victim's death."

The Aftershocks of Gay Marriage

Originally posted in May 2008

Journalists often talk about whether a story has "legs." Whether it has the ability to walk forward and affect events weeks or months into the future.

Astonishingly, there's been little talk about the long-term effects of the California Supreme Court's legalization of same-sex marriage. But, looking beyond the ruling?'s most obvious implication, the redefinition of marriage, the decision foreshadows a nation in which all citizens will not only be asked to tolerate same-sex marriage, but be required to promote it.

Going the Way of Rome

Originally posted in April 2008

They say those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. I believe the U.S. is slouching toward Rome - and a Cicero is nowhere to be found. Where are we today compared to the empire that lasted 500 years?

* National debt: $10 trillion

* U.S. federal budget over $3 trillion. That's 50 percent higher than it was in 2000.

* Trade deficit: $58 billion

* No meaningful borders, with record immigration levels and no chance for assimilation

* Total breakdown of education system

* No common faith or unifying moral principles that bind the nation together

* Even age-old institutions like marriage and parenthood are being redefined

* In a time of relative peace, our military forces are stationed in more than 100 foreign nations
