Moral Decay

June 24, 2013

Dear?Editor I am going to ask you a simple question. Do you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God? If you don't, than you can cease reading this if you wish....

The fundamentalist's can't handle such simple yet true reasoning.

I find it so ironic that people who are so against sodomy will jam religion right up my rear. What if people raised their children to have values & empathy not out of fear of an imaginary god or heaven, but just because it was the right thing to do? Morality is doing right, no matter what you are told. Religion on the other hand is doing what you're told regardless if its right or not.

Science flies you to the moon..... Religion flies you into buildings!

The Scarlett Sage

“He never uttered a hasty, unkind, untrue, or frivolous word. He never entertained an impure thought. His talents never debased for selfish ends. His influence, never bad. His judgment, never wrong. He never had to apologize for anything that He did or retract a single word He said. He was never too late or too soon, never upset, never insipid, never shallow or afraid. . . He had absolute victory from the moment He drew his first breath in that Bethlehem barn until the moment He closed His eyes in death on the cross of Calvary.”

~ John Phillips If you’re looking for a hero, let me suggest mine. His name is Jesus.

Christianity is already illegal or severely restricted in 51 countries. So you can come down from your pulpit. Ain't nothing new under the Sun.

Well written Mr Marple. Those Godless heathens who disagree are simply ignorant. Thank you for putting your thoughts forward. It was a brave thing to do since Christianity is on the verge of becoming an illegal religion. Well played sir.

A Baptist preacher named William Miller predicted that Christ would return on April 4, 1843. As we can see not much has changed since then.

I am amazed that R.M. never mentioned "divorce". Does he accept it as "normal"? What does the Bible say?

Somehow turley was able to turn the letter "Moral Decay" into the fact that President Obama is a Nazi. While fedupwithgovt proved that he and promo61 need to be in the same mental ward.

So next time a bunch of babies are killed at a elementary school or a crazed bomber blows up a city street or terrorist start lighting wildfires in the west. Do God a favor. Leave him alone America.

The man that wrote this needs mental help. I can't believe he says that god kills babies to get our "attention.

I believe Mr. Marple is correct. It is a shame that we have people in our society like BCF & OLUHJNB, it is no wonder, with attitudes like this, that we have the drugs and crime to contend with. Look at what our society is demanding, what our government is stuffing down our throats. Bishop Sheen, who has since passed away, made a statement long ago that is very apropos to our society now. "When the ABNORMAL becomes the NORM Satan is in our midst" Eleven words that says volumes if you really think about it. And yes, Religion and honoring GOD is where we have to return before this country will ever heal itself. When 911 occurred the churches were filled for a short time? I hope we can fill them for the right reason and not for another calamity.

...and Spanky said it best "We are not being punished by God because our Government will not promote God. We are suffering the consequences of many years of poor choices by the citizens, has nothing to do God." Very well put, Spanky McSpankster ;-)

Wow....just wow....I'm amazed at how much hate has been spewed throughout these comments. I'm probably more amazed at the fact that, for the first time, I kind of agree with BCF. I, too, believe you don't need religion to have morals. Growing up with an extremely hypocritical mother, I grew to disbelieve in my Baptist upbringing due to her contradictions. So I guess I can't fully agree with the writer of this editorial. It's sad to know that there are people out there who honestly believe God would inflict pain, fear and destruction upon us to get a point across. Seriously?? That in itself is a huge contradiciton from a man who claims to be loving and perfect. I am a firm believer that what you put in comes back to you. As a nation, we've been putting in some pretty nasty stuff (along with some good, of course), so we can't be surprised when things start going wrong. Ever hear of Karma? Anyway, I'm not going to join in the demeaning banter, but I did wanna state my opinion=

Watch the stupid Texas republicans slowly bleed themselves to death over abortion. Their inept and stupid Governor is a blessing for Democrats. By 2050 white people will be a minority in this country. Bye Bye Rick Perry, turley, promo, and thoughtful.

"Will ignorance is a sin". This sums up the mindset of fundamentalist thinking Christians.
