Mass Shootings Sign of Societal Collapse
The tragic surge of mass shootings across America is neither the result of presidential rhetoric nor the result of lax gun laws. The Columbine massacre occurred on Bill Clinton’s watch when the assault gun ban was in effect. Sandy Hook happened during the Obama Presidency.
No, the continuing explosion in violence in America—which includes the daily killing of innocents in large, Democrat-run cities like Chicago – is a consequence of the progressive abandonment of religious values and moral principles that are leading to societal collapse on a level not seen since the fall of the Roman Empire. These values and principles, rooted in Biblical law and Christianity for more than 2000 years, dictated a respect for the dignity of human life which has all but disintegrated throughout the Western World over the last half-century.
The embrace of a soulless secularism which can trace its origins at least to the days of the French Revolution all the way through the godless communist ideology of Marx in the mid-19th century to the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s has reaped a bloody harvest of death and destruction unparalleled in human history.
The irony of this reality is that the agents of death and destruction are the very ones who determined that God should be dethroned and Man raised in his place. That the worship of God should be replaced with the Worship of Man. And, the result of their efforts in the 20th century: Two of the worst wars in human history, costing the lives of over 80 million people. The mass exterminations of Hitler, Stalin and Mao which led to the deaths of over 100 million. Pol Pot’s annihiliation of half of Cambodia’s population. Mass murder by totalitarian regimes throughout Africa and on and on. All in the name of “progress” and creating a “new man.” A “new man” without God.
This repudiation of the value of human life by the cultural Marxists and secularists in American society is manifested by the murder of over 60 million unborn babies since Roe v. Wade in 1973 – a holocaust of shame that permanently disfigures the face of America. And, it is manifested by what we saw happen recently in Gilroy, California, Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas. For if any society can so callously and brutally destroy its most innocent and defenseless, what message does that society transmit to others about the value of human life?
