Common Sense Has Left the Building

In an article by Elwood McQuaid in the Jan/Feb 2014 edition of Israel My Glory, he states:

"When 5-year-olds are expelled from class for pointing, school bus drivers refuse to intercede while teenagers pummel and bully children, and the Pledge of Allegiance and patriotic assemblies are banished from schools, it's time to ask, 'Whatever happened to common sense?'

The answer is political correctness.  Imposed by forces totally out of step with America's traditions, political correctness has emerged as the promised 'transformation' of the nation.

A revolution is raging.  What was revered historically as common sense is gone, and there is a reason why.  America's social awareness and rules of conduct were based on the Christian values the Founding Fathers wove into the fabric of the republic.  The Ten Commandments, truth, respect for others, and a love of God and country undergirded the governing system that rose among the nations as a spectacular exception to the oppresive cultures immigrants fled, to breathe the free air of America, the land of endless opportunity.

Today most Americans share a nearly universal lack of awareness concerning the seriousness and consequences of the atttacks on their country's way of life.  Some, however, have connected the dots and are demonstrating the courage to say so...........

When a society abandons the moral, spiritual, and intellectual standards instilled through divine authority, it forfits its common sense as well.  Allowing every person to concoct his or her own standards, using self as the supreme relevant factor, is a perscription for disaster.

Thankfully, that isn't the way the world was designed to work.  And for that reason, Jesus has promised to return and set things right.  How do we know?  It's  in the Bible,  And that is the only Book with standards that will endure forever."

"Whatever happened to common sense?"
