John Flanagan: Events like these, now more commonplace than rare, are symptoms of our decaying society. The moral fabric has declined because many in our society are no longer taught, or merely reject, the notion of living a life of self control, based on Christian principles and basic decency. Not only Hollywood and the entertainment media's squalid and profane values, exercised of course on the idea of freedom of expression, but academia is also to blame. The educational values of post modernists and progressives demeans life through the promotion of abortion for convenience; rejection of family values and traditional marriage for open deviancy. Parents, in many cases, have not taught their children, but our amoral society is certainly up to the task. Add the demand for violent movies, pornography, loose morals, narcissistic and vain social networking, and the pattern emerges. We are not a progressive society, but a deteriorating one. Our problems with crime, drugs, political corruption, economic mismanagement, and social angst are all related to our spiritual decline. Some Americans have lost their knowledge of the difference between right and wrong, and many others simply no longer care.
