It has been a slow process but social issues have been removed from all political parties and public square discussions. We have been trained to believe that it is too controversial to talk about abortion, marriage as being between a man and a woman, and God in our country and over our lives.
The Christian community has taken a back seat and has let secular humanism take over. It started years ago in school curriculums.
Because political parties, who were socially conservative, were so vilified, they have become afraid to talk about social issues for fear of not getting elected.
I hear people say "We are losing our country." I say it is not because of capitalism or socialism but because morals and Christian values have been removed and we have not stood up and said "No more!"

Who are the silent majority that I have always heard about? Are they still the God-fearing, patriotic people raising their families but too busy with their lives that they have no clue that their country is changing into a godless society?
Young silent majority voters, you are our future. You need to look around and see what life is like without morals and values in our country -- chaos! Don't be intimidated and made to sit down and shut up. Get involved and know who you are voting for and what their values are.
Every election is important. Know each candidate and the issues and get to the polls and vote for men and women with integrity who are not afraid to stand up for godly morals and values.
