Moral Decline

The family unit is under attack. Once in America, the culture would “work with” the family to raise children. Our culture is corrupted (but note we have never been “perfect” or had a “golden era” of morality). We have become very violent as a culture. Our cities are violent, our movies are violent, our TV shows are violent, some of our music is violent, and some of our sports are violent. Many who have much (though not all) care little for those who are in poverty or struggling. A mixed message is being sent to young women and men (especially women). On the one hand, we desire to see our women progressing upward, but many aspects of our culture teach us to view women as “sexual objects.” Many men have abandoned their responsibility to be good fathers and husbands.

Note: There are many people doing many good deeds and are upstanding citizens in America and California. People are quietly volunteering, giving generous sums of money to help people in need, and working hard in their jobs to make society we live in a better place. But we are gradually being engulfed by evil fueled by selfishness and sin.

We are sinners that have the capability of doing great good (or evil). Sin and selfishness are the root cause of our problems as a society and state.
