The Greatest Gift for All

"In recent decades we have begun losing sight of the historic achievement that empowered the individual. The religious, legal and political roots of this great achievement are no longer reverently taught in high schools, colleges and universities. The voices that reach us through the millennia and connect us to our culture are being silenced by "political correctness." Prayer has been driven from schools and Christian religious symbols from public life. Diversity is becoming the consuming value and is dismantling the culture...

...Christianity's emphasis on the worth of the individual makes such power as Lenin claimed unthinkable. Be we religious or be we not, our celebration of Christ's birthday celebrates a religion that made us masters of our souls and of our political life on Earth.

NOTE:  PCR is right.  What are the limits of authority?  If it doesn't end with "God" or whatever word you wish to use to express this idea - it will end here on earth - with the power-hungry - the selfish - the greedy - the self-important self-absorbed control freaks.  And it has.  Look around you.

The younger generation has been raised to reject the concept of a creator - and in doing so - as PCR points out so eloquently - regardless of whether or not they believe in such an idea - are sacrificing the valuable appeal to higher authority that keeps us all equal.

If I weren't a grown-up - I'd find this whole situation funny - since the younger generation aids their own demise.  There is nothing funny about it.
