I had to chuckle this morning. There was an advertisement of the boob tube featuring an outdated personal computer, with the statement, "do you remember having to write a paper on one of these?" It wasn't all that long ago papers had to be written longhand, or typed on unforgiving typewriter, using actual books for information.
Times have changed, but what has certainly not changed, despite society's best efforts, is the morals and values we guide our life by. Inappropriate behavior is still looked down upon, in most cases. A sin is still a sin and socially unacceptable. Even the attempts by the minority fringe to support immoral causes like same sex marriage, or promote behavior that is sexually suggestive in an attempt to, "get the camel's nose under the tent," draws an air of disapproval. Inappropriate behavior is still disapproved of, ask Anthony Weiner.
While the majority of us work diligently to keep our sinful behavior in check; I have to wonder if that is enough? Isn't our job as parents and responsible members of society to voice our disgust when a minority cause confuses what is a right of mankind, with deviant selfish behavior? Suppose a handful of citizens decided that murder was their right? Maybe they took it upon themselves to cleanse society of people they deemed unacceptable. Because they declared it a right, and could partially defend it's merit from a convoluted point of view, is it then absolved as not sinful? Even if they claimed to be anointed by some spiritual being to carry out this cause for the good of humanity, does it qualify as morally acceptable? Not now, not ever! It's morally bankrupt, and defined as such in the handbook of life, the Bible.
It's time to make a stand. We cannot as a society accept excuses such as, "I can't help the way I feel," or, "I have a right." We cannot be made to feel guilty as discriminating against immoral behavior, when the behavior is immoral. There are no gray areas when it comes to right and wrong, and ignoring wrong is contrived acceptance.
