I’m not an alarmist. But I am alarmed.
Like most older Christians, I’m frankly combating a form of cognitive dissonance. (I mention “older” because younger Christians understandably lack the decades of experience and observation to recognize how radically different today’s social realities are compared to those of the ‘40s and ‘50s.) My mental maps of what reality” was no longer align with the alarming landscapes unfolding before me.
Please understand. My point is not to moralize nostalgically about “the good ol’ days.” The truth be told, there was a lot about the good old days that wasn’t all that good. (I recall one oldtimer’s wry statement, “Things just aren’t like they used to be, and probably never were.”)
But because there’s no going back, it behooves us to remove our rosecolored glasses and soberly confront the accelerating decline in an array of spiritual, moral, and cultural indicators. The movement for same-sex marriages (a strand of which has now metastasized into a tyrannical demand that our wives, daughters, and granddaughters share public bathrooms with men who feel they are really women) is as flagrant an indication of incipient cultural insanity as I have ever witnessed.
You’ll want to be well-equipped for the gathering storm with our special issue of the CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL, “Of Bathroom Bills and Basic Beliefs.” I share this with my thanks for the difference your partnership makes. And your partnership does make a difference!
