When shows like honey boo boo and Jersey shore at at the top of the charts, it means we have a serious fricking problem

How many pregnant HS girls do you know Zach?

Because, from my experience, they are generally ostracized for being pregnant. It's not something that gets celebrated.

At the same we allowed 55 million (maybe more) children to be born into circumstances that almost guaranteed that they would wind up in prison. And then we complained bitterly about the costs involved in supporting them.

Didn't see that coming. I'm sure their earthly existence would have been splendid, being born into a household that wishes they never existed.

re: Why do republicans say America is morally bankrupt


Why?
1. We have men marrying men and women marrying women and find nothing wrong with it
2. Since Roe v. Wade was instituted, we have murdered over 50 million innocent babies
3. Two states have now legalized marijuana
4. We have taken God out of the schools, courtrooms, and other public places

Other than that our morals are great!!!

He's old, cut him some slack.. He's probably seen that MTV show and thinks it's a cultural norm that is desirable.

LOL at TN. If the Catholic Church were anything other than a religious institution that tugs at the heartstrings of some and hits home with some politicians, it would have been broken up as the most massive, institutionalized criminal enterprise (pedo ring) ever. Props to them for having lots of money and good lawyers. And this is coming from a Catholic kid of Polish descent (JP II )

When did we have "morals"? Can you give me a time frame?

Mother of God.

I don't know where to start.

If anything, society has progressively become more moral.

only problem is that morals are ever changing. Conservative though centers on a past era's moral stance in order to relive what one thinks of as a better time in history. When in fact it wasn't


Morality, knowing right from wrong and knowing actions have consequences, is ingrained in any mentally healthy person's psyche.

Unless you call a TV show on MTV being ostracized.

And yet we increased the baby mommas' checks every time they had another one.

Yes and the signs of this are evident everywhere including this board. Good grief people are spiritually bind.

I can unequivocally attest that your moral compass (as a Christian I assume) is skewed if you believe human action prior to 1960 was morally superior.

I would support the notion that individualism and self-reliance was superior, but not "morals".

200 years ago, there was no major society that had ever existed without slavery.

You know what, I was going to continue with examples but it almost isn't worth it.
