Letter to the Editor

Did you see my letter to the editor in last week’s local newspaper: Davie County Enterprise Record, Thursday, April 28, 2016.  For those of you who missed it, see below.


A Call for Decency


House Bill 2 and the controversy surrounding it is merely a symptom of a much greater problem in American society – the loss of a sense of decency.  Language has become coarse and vulgar; violence now fills our music and cinema; sexual immorality is rampant; perversions are the new normal.  A small but vocal minority seem bent on corrupting the nation while the rest of us sit idly by lacking the moral fiber to take a resolute stand.  Too many of us when challenged, instead of moving forward for moral decency, begin back pedaling.  We who stand on the higher ground should never flinch.  America would do well to heed the warning of the Proverb: “Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)
