After careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion our worldhas gone stark raving mad and the US now leads the pack. I readabout the duplicity of government, abortionists murdering babies whowere born alive, the Boston bombing, 2nd Amendment treason andseveral other topics illustrating it truly is a mad, mad world run bypower hungry maniacs.This makes me wish for the peace and quiet I knew growing up justafter WWII.Children could safely play in their neighborhoods withoutfear. Schools still taught, really taught, truer history and demandedyou learn reading, writing, math and manners. Our country turned itsback on Him years ago. Banning prayer in our schools leave ourchildren with no moral compass. They defile their bodies with multipletattoos and body piercings proving they have no respect for anythingincluding themselves. Their minds are filled with violence from variousmedia so they believe violence is okay. Then suddenly they are toldbullying is wrong. Bullying is violence and violence is wrong all thewhile still being fed violence in movies, TV and video games. They aretaught sex in elementary school long before their minds are ready forit. And not just sex. They are now being taught perversions in thelower grades. No wonder they are confused.I am of a generation raised on prayer, patriotism and respect. Isuppose they would call me old fashioned. We had prayer and said thepledge of allegiance every morning. Divorce was only acceptable if thespouse was abusive or committed adultery. There was no such thingas irreconcilable differences. You not only said vows to each other, yousaid them to God. You meant, "until death do us part."You earned your grades or you didn't go to the next level - period. Theonly exception was if you were learning disabled then they kept youfor 3 years in the same grade before "passing" you to the next levelbut everyone was made to understand only "special" children weretreated that way. Notice I said "special". They were not labeled asretarded or disabled. We were even taught to respect without pitythose whose minds were not a sharp as the rest of us.Now we are faced with so many ills and evils in our world. We have
 
achieved "when evil is good and good is evil" status. The US is beingdestroyed from within while most of the rest of the world slides downsimilar slippery slopes.Today I read a series of articles bringing home to me that the wholeworld is topsy-turvy. We are told good is evil and evil is good. It isbetter to be a leech and live off welfare than to earn an honest living.The American flag is defiled in the classroom and banned from schools.Items that once were tools are now weapons and are forbidden. Ourchildren are taught homosexuality in elementary school while God isbanned.An Oklahoma school district is facing a lawsuit for allegedly forbiddingorganizers of a Christian club from promoting events on campus. Theclub met at the local elementary school and was open to students inkindergarten through the fifth grade. Other clubs including the BoyScouts and YMCA are allowed to promote activities at the school, butthe Christian group is not. The club was organized last year and Sharpsaid the “Kids for Christ” were initially given permission to promoteactivities through flyers and announcements. But that changed withthe new semester.
