A Moral Compass

The United States is on the verge of falling onto the abyss of moral decay.

A Moral Compass

When Reverend Billy Graham recently supported legislation to ban same sex marriages in his state he pointed to one very important facet of American society today. That is the overall morality in this country has been eroded almost to the point of no return. And, now with the Supreme Court ruling recently only pushes this nation away from the moral concepts of our founding. We have to remember that any society that looses sight of basic moral values no matter how strong militarily they are that society is doomed to fall.

Never before in the history of the United States has there been such an uproar over gay rights. Sure, just like in the animal kingdom there are instances where biological mishaps occur. In humans we too sometimes have genetic alterations that confuse the individual's sexual orientation but not at the epidemic proportion it is happening today. In no other culture is there this amount of attention and emphasis put on same sex unions.

Now we have the leader of the free world whose obligation it is to lead not only this nation but be that moral compass for our society as well. To philander to special interest groups, to defy the sanctity of marriage, and to openly endorse what some would call perversion is pretty much steering this country down that slippery slope of moral decay. Are we to become the next Sodom and Gomorrah? Is this nation the next to fall like ancient Rome? These are questions that need to be answered now. No longer can our moral compass lead this nation down that path we have been headed on for over 40 years.

What began as liberalization and loose interpretation of America's Constitution and the Bill of Rights has pointed our moral compass in the exact opposite direction of the path our founding fathers charted for us today. When Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration Of Independence stating inalienable rights these inalienable rights come with a moral obligation to fulfill. The United States was founded on four basic concepts: Liberty, Justice, Education, and Morality. All of these are the most essential principals for a society to flourish. It is no more evident of what moral decay has done to our society today. Just look at how far the United States has regressed in educational standards compared with 50 years ago. When one of these four guiding principals is ignored or displaced all the others equally erode guaranteeing societies fall.

It is time that American's elected officials the ones that write the laws that steer this country use this moral compass to put this country back on the path that our founding fathers first charted. This comes with the convictions and re instituting the morality of our founding fathers in every piece of legislation that is passed.

What is so immoral about being gay? Being gay is as normal as being straight, since people are born that way - they don't choose being gay. Who on earth would choose to be gay knowing they will have to spend a lifetime receiving intolerance and ostracism from those who think it's immoral? I believe in reincarnation, and I think that those who belittle and criticize gays will be born gay in a future life and have to endure the intolerance they once dished out. It's called karma.
