Letter: We do nothing while morality is lost

Published:

 

I’m old; I admit it. I remember when this was a moral country, when there was a definite right and wrong.

Then in the 1960s the immoral society made it’s entrance. “Free love” was the new morality. “If it feels good, do it.” Immorality was the “in thing.” Sadly, that led to an amoral country.

No longer is there any real right or wrong. Everyone does what is right in their own eyes and the only thing that seems to be unacceptable in our country today is saying that something is unacceptable.

Dare to speak up for biblical principles and you are labeled a “bigot” and so much more.

As we have seen in the past, when good men do nothing, evil prevails. During the 1960s many didn’t choose immorality, but, they didn’t speak up against it. In the 1970s, many were personally against abortion, but, in the name of “choice” we did nothing.

Now our governor wants to legalize gay marriage in our state. What’s next? Is it too late to speak up? Maybe so, because we are complacently setting in that pot of water that is slowly coming to a boil and just enjoying the warmth. But, that boiling water will be the ultimate end of our nation.
