Letter to the editor: Heart of man must change
A young bank teller asked me, “What is the biggest change that you saw during your 90 years?” I replied, “The people.”
The greatest generation were not angels, but divorce and drugs were practically nonexistent. People wore their Sunday best when going to church. X-rated movies were unheard of. In addition to Bible reading and prayer, public schools taught love of country. Abortionists were sent to prison. Sex-change operations and transgenderism were unheard of. Priests, ministers and teachers were scandal-free. Politicians were public servants by choice, not a privileged class.
A college professor said, “History shows that once a nation loses its moral character, that is the beginning of the end of that nation.”
With 60 million abortions and counting, our drug epidemic, fatherless children, young ladies covering their bodies with tattoos, a near complete lack of morality, the recent water attacks on New York City police … no gun law will stop mass killings or any other crime until the heart of man is changed. Until then, the prudent man will arm himself for the day when or if the police decide not to come to work.
