"Benjamin Franklin accurately observed, "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom."
John Adams said, "The Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
The United States, and the global community for that matter, have entered into a dark era of history where morality has become nothing more than a pluralistic free for all. With the removal of the set standards of morality which have guided cultures for the betterment of society, we find ourselves doing the same thing the Greeks and the Romans did. We are destroying ourselves from within.
Free will is an incredible gift we have been given by God, but when our activities as a people move away from godliness, the consequences begin to build up. When we replace the truth with lies, and then try to condone our actions by placing one of our feet into the cesspool of the world, our children jump into the steaming pot of debauchery with both feet."
