After reading the column on out-of-wedlock childbirth, the consequence of lack of self-discipline is apparent.
Adults in present day America are generally lacking in this basal element of virtue, and we are not able to raise children with self-control. Until we admit our need in this area, every aspect of social issues in our country will continue the rapid fall into permanent declination.
Our country's Judeo-Christian foundation is what made us different from the rest of the world, and as we hand over this trust and pick up the mantle of apathy, our respect for ourselves and others will never be seen again. May God forgive us.
