The religious right claims that America is in ANOTHER moral crisis

The following is another one of those God-awful religious right produced "America is in a moral crisis" video.

How many times does that make it? What are we? A country or Erica Kane from All My Children.

One of these days, I am going to do a google search on all of the times the religious right have claimed that this country is in a "moral crisis."

Seems to me that a crisis denotes a coming catastrophe and if this country hasn't gone over the abyss yet, then someone or some people are yanking our chains.

From Religious Right Watch:

America is on the brink of collapse, and Truth in Action Ministries is warning in a new film, as a result of gay rights, liberalism and secular government. The group unveiled The Price of Freedom following a series of films blaming America’s ills on the IRS and homosexuality, calling for its criminalization. The film features Mike Huckabee, anti-gay activist Harry Jackson, Liberty Counsel’s Harry Mihet, Movieguide’s Ted Baehr and tea party activist Paul Jehle, along with the predictably ominous scenes from gay rights rallies and parades. Others participating in the film include Southern Baptist Convention’s Richard Land and Congressmen Todd Akin and Cliff Stearns.

“We have created a future for our children which is very negative in the sense that if they live in a socialized culture, in a perverse culture, all of the pillars of society are going to be pulled out from under them,” Baehr asserted. Jackson spoke of a “head-to-head battle” between “liberal, secular people” and the church, which Mihet said can prevent “moral chaos.”

If we have a moral crisis because we have a secular government, then we've been in a moral crisis since 1787.

I saw a post on the internet today that I think sums it up. Here's my synopsis of that comment: What we're witnessing is the death throes of conservative Christianity. Every time we see something like this video, remember that it's a "cornered-rat" effort by the moral right to hang on to some vestige of relevance and power through fear-mongering.

Has no one learned anything from the countries that allow same sex marriage? Last time I checked, Canada hadn't fallen into the abyss or collapsed into moral anarchy.

In Canada gay people get married all the time. We are generally well liked in society and the workplace.

Full civil rights does that.
