Pogo once said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.”
Watching TV recently, I realized that I could count on the fingers of one hand the number of shows I see that do not include scenes of co-habitation, homosexuality, fornication or adultery. We have allowed Hollywood in film and TV to erase any sense of morality from our society.
The script writers seem to believe that telling a story without open sex will not attract the audience. It’s no wonder that every day we hear of sexual abuse in all areas of our society, since use of sex is just one more form of amusement.
Through the ages, society after society has fallen, not from the enemies without but the enemy within: blatant immorality.
Wake up, America. We are treading a dangerous path that will cause us to lose our God-given blessings.

The State publishes a cross section of the letters we receive from South Carolinians in order to provide a forum for our community and also to allow our community to get a good look at itself, for good or bad. The letters represent the views of the letter writers, not necessarily of The State.
