Are We Slouching Toward Gomorrah?

You may have heard about the Harris Poll released this past Friday. I have linked it. When Americans were asked who they most admired---who was their hero----Barack Obama was #1, Jesus Christ was #2, Martin Luther King #3, Ronald Reagan #4, George W. Bush #5 and Lincoln #6. "God" was #11, Hillary Clinton #12 and Sarah Palin #21.

Are We Slouching Toward Gomorrah?

In William Butler Yeats' "The Second Coming," he wrote in 1919, "And what rough beast, it's hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

The rough beast that Yeats saw is now a monster of decadence, a plague several generations in the making and we now seem to be sloughing not toward Bethlehem, but towards Gomorrah, the biblical city destroyed because of it's wickedness.

Thirteen years ago Judge Robert Bork defined the root of decline.

We are witnessing the sprouting of that root in Washington State and across our nation.

Can we turn the tide?


We have a choice. Here's how.

In his book, "Slouching Towards Gomorrah," published in 1996, Yale Law Professor and Judge Robert Bork said, "The root of our decline is the rise of modern liberalism."

He said, "From the collapse of popular culture to the weakening of the intellect; From the assault of radical feminism on American institutions and freedoms, to the "killing for convenience" of abortion and euthanasia, we are headed in the wrong direction."

Bork said we have a choice.

"We can accept our fate and try to insulate ourselves and our loved ones from the devastating effects of a degenerating culture or we can choose to halt the beast, to oppose modern liberalism in every arena. An understanding of our problem and the will to resist, may be our only hope."

Robert H. Bork taught Constitutional Law at Yale Law School, served as Solicitor General and as Acting Attorney of the United States and as a United States Court of Appeals judge.

When President Ronald Reagan nominated him for the Supreme Court, Senator Joe Biden chaired, led and carried out the most vicious attack ever witnessed in American politics toward a Supreme Court nominee.


Because of his conservative views.

Now we are seeing the results of a culture, as he predicted, that continues to slouch towards Gomorrah.

We are now seeing the extreme ideas that were tossed around in far left, extreme classrooms of the 60's and early 70's become reality and public policy in every aspect of our culture. Nothing seems to be exempt; from welfare, abortion and euthanasia, to sexuality, gender confusion and the normalization of homosexuality under the guise of fairness and equality.

We are seeing a collapse of moral clarity in favor of an artificially inseminated political correctness, born from relativism. And we slouch toward Gomorrah. With the elected shock troops of the homosexual agenda in Washington State politics---you know their names--- we are seeing our culture redefined and destroyed. All with a smile and a swagger.

What will we do? What can we do?

Will we accept our fate and try to insulate ourselves and our loved ones from the devastating effects of this degenerating culture or will we halt the beast?

I suggest we halt the beast.

I agree with Bork. Understanding the problem, and I believe you do, and having the will to resist is our hope.

We understand their agenda. We also understand the reality of the numbers of liberal and conservative lawmakers in the Legislature.

Do we have the will to resist?

I do. Those of you who are people of faith have seen and read of the super natural works of God. You must decide if you will stand and resist or insulate yourself and your loved ones and accept the fate.

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord, we will, in every way possible, resist the effort to destroy and redefine marriage and the family and we will believe that God will act according to His principles and laws.

With God's help and your support, this battle can be won.

Thank you for standing with us.
