Prognosis; Grim

FRIDAY 7-04-08…Today, we celebrate the birth of this nation. One might reasonably ask “what is the health of our nation today?” Based on consumer sentiment, the answer would be “not very good.” But, what if we were to ask “what is the spiritual health of our nation today?” How would we answer? To be perfectly honest, we’d have to answer “not very good.”

Author Charles LiMandri points to a study conducted by British anthropologist Joseph Unwin presented to the British Psychological Society in 1935. In that study, Professor Unwin sought to prove that the traditional monogamous model for marriage was not essential to the maintenance of a healthy society. But, after studying different cultures across time and continents, he came to the conclusion that the traditional male-female monogamous model for marriage was indeed the best foundation for a healthy and productive society.

He found that when a society started to move away from the traditional model of male-female monogamous marriage as its foundation, it would begin to unravel. It would then take another three generations of deterioration from that point on, for the society to collapse.

If you remember your history lessons from school, you’ll recall George Washington’s farewell address to the nation, where he tried to impress on everyone that it was Religion and Morality that served as the foundation for this new nation. But, in 1947, the U.S. Supreme Court imposed an unconstitutional “Wall of Separation” between Church and state, which directly contradicted the vision of our founding fathers.

Without the foundation of Religion and Morality which our forefathers provided for us, it would seem to me that there is simply no real hope for the future of this country. So, celebrate this nation’s birth date today. Eat, drink, and be merry…..for tomorrow? Who knows!!
