The unspeakable acts committed in Newtown, Connecticut are just that; cold-blooded murders perpetrated by a very disturbed man. Yet, in the same breath, it’s extremely disturbing that so many have tried to politicize the deaths of these children solely for the exploits of a political agenda. I could try to blame an inanimate object, completely disregard the culpability of the offender, but that would be both myopic and irresponsible. If someone truly wants to harm others, the weapon of choice - guns, poison, a Ryder truck filled with explosives - is merely a means of malevolence, a tool of one's bidding.

 

The truth is, “we as a society” - not firearms - bear much of the blame. For decades our values and morals have systematically eroded under the banner of “modernity” and “tolerance”. Violence is rampant in every facet of our lives – television, movies, video games, sports, everyday lifestyle – and yet Hollywood, the pinnacle of political hypocrisy, points the finger at gun loving, uncultured rednecks. Sure, some may be, yet by the same token, countless children, some as young as elementary school, have seen every kind of porn on the internet – even “sexting” and sending nude pictures to friends – before that fabled first date or first kiss. If that’s not disturbing, I don’t know what is. Then again, countless adults, those whom kids rely on for guidance and strength, are now busted watching it at work. And yes, that includes our so-called elected leaders who lack the competence and due diligence to even balance the national checkbook. So much for strength in numbers, or should I say, moral authority?

 

Speaking of the American family, it has now officially become a victim of relativism and the epitome of dysfunction; an epitaph chiseled by broken homes, absent or abusive parenting, and alcohol-induced mentoring. Unfortunately, whenever critics try to point out these glaring deficits – especially in the realm of sex, drugs and violence – they’re labeled antiquated prudes, religious extremists. The fact God, faith, is incessantly being eroded by radical, fringe elements within this country is case-in-point. Progressives dismissed God from our educational institutions, his moral doctrine, yet we fill our prisons with Bibles. Likewise, and equally bewildering, some will fight tooth and nail to protect abortion – which in its most glorified state is still the death of a human being – yet they turn a blind eye to the cultural divide that is engulfing our youth, if not our very souls, in the process. Regardless of whether you’re a Christian, a Jew, or an Atheist, morality/ethics doesn’t change according to place or era; no matter how hard political hacks try to use entertainment and/or pop culture polls to condition the masses and sway your opinions. Sadly, the heartbreak in Newtown is but a microcosm of our own failure: in what we teach, value, and what we protect. If one value is breached, what is to keep the next one from suffering the same fate? Is it nothing more than an election-day referendum? Then again, as long as we get our favorite TV show, that new cell phone, those bedazzled shoes, free internet porn, and our favorite food delivered to our recliner, do we even care anymore?

 

That antiquated common thread of decency, common sense, is quickly unraveling as we incessantly squabble over political talking points in a desperate an insatiable attempt to shove our respective agendas down each other’s throat. We can argue gun control until we’re blue in the face, yet that will not change the real problem: America. Drugs are supposedly illegal, yet they are prevalent in our schools, our neighborhoods. Therefore, these senseless acts will not subside until we as a nation look in the mirror and realize we all have a cross to bear. I, for one, am disgusted by what I see. What parent ever dreams of their child becoming a heroin addict, a prostitute, the executioner of childhood innocence? If “change” does not begin at home, in our everyday lives, it is nothing more than a trending twitter hashtag, a blank check for disaster. Our beloved nation is becoming morally bankrupt, and frankly I don’t think we can bear the cost much longer. May God be with the victims and their families, and may he give us the strength to do what is right: to become accountable!

  ladybard "HO,WOOD"?... ha,ha,ha,   people will pimp themselves out just to get one try at a script reading! Too bad our U.S. schools fail to teach them to read much past 7th. grade. The casting couch has more bed bugs, than all of the hotels in N.Y. City combined.

 Dear Maynard....  you seem like a great guy, on a CONSERVATIVE WDBSITE... Hollywood players ( those who run the place suck cow crap through a straw...) For the most part.  For fun?  Find clubs that have open mic-NIGHT, and just do it for yourself, for fun.  Agents hang out in some of those places.  ( when I was 9 mo. pregnant? my husband opened the fridge, and said...hey honey,... I think I'll start drink'n light beer, so I can look like MR. ATLAS while you look like the world atlas...) I'll let you guess what I told him. :))

I agree with the post completely.  Like you, I was always confused how society in general could ignore the filth and debauchery that has taken hold while at the same time fight for abortion, crippling welfare states, and anti-religion.  As the writer stated:

 "The fact God, faith, is incessantly being eroded by radical, fringe elements within this country is case-in-point. I find it disturbing some will fight tooth and nail to protect abortion – which in its most glorified state is still the death of a human being – yet they turn a blind eye to the cultural divide that is engulfing our youth, if not our very souls, in the process." 

However, we should stop trying to make sense of what the left and their evil puppeteers are doing.  In our frame of reference, we will never be able to rationalize their behavior.  Only when you recognize them as evil and call them for what they are: EVIL, can you understand that everything they've done, and are continuing to do, is exactly part of Satan's plan.

God gave us free will.  He gave us a brain to think with.  He has given us prophets throughout the ages to instruct and help us to understand what we should do for our own soul growth.  Satan opposes all of that.  However, he has to find ways to get us to voluntarily choose to turn away from God and instead choose the ways of the world--the ways of Satan.

Our human race has been marching toward hell with an alarming speed.  Throughout history, there has been a battle between good and evil.  Many times, evil won temporarily.  We can reject the allure of evil, but it is not easy, especially when the people we elect to lead us turn out to be followers of evil.

I'm not a preacher.  I'm not even overly religious; but I am starting to see that there is a method to their madness.  I hope, and pray, that enough people will awaken before it is too late to recover our society.  It's easy to say things like: it's in God's hands, or as God wills, but that's a cop out.  God has already done something; he's put us here and equipped us with all we need to resist Satan and fight the evil.  We just have to decide to do it.

Lanyard... you are so right, on so many evels.

There are actors out there that are on our side , but not enough. The most liberal Marxist actors/actresses are given the staring roles in the biggest money making blockbuster films. There is a blacklist in Hollywood now just like there was in the 50's to keep the communists out. Now it is back but it is to keep conservatives out. If they are conservative like Eastwood then they are already established and they can't blacklist him. These great actors we are loosing once by one and they are not being replaced by another conservative actor. I never pay to see a Matt Damen or Ben Afleck or Sean Penn film, they are communists.
