One cannot help but be aware of mass shootings, drug and alcohol problems, random violence and the general harshness of the population reported on a daily basis in the media.

Talking heads everywhere offer varied solutions to these problems, none of which will work. No one seems to pay any attention to the real problem, which in essence is the complete loss of morality in society today.

A segment of society will never agree because people in it prefer to follow gods of their own making.

The problems of today can be traced back almost 60 years when humanists decided to remove our only guide to living a moral life from our schools, the Bible.
