Thought of the Day: I think what's remarkable in this day and age is the total disconnect most people have with morality, as though it's someone else's problem, and that it's something you can totally dispense with in the conduct of your daily life.
Perhaps it was their upbringing that did it. Perhaps it's the consequence of a Christian Church that has, for the most part, so utterly lost its way that it refuses to recognize that it has a major piece of the blame in this.
To even talk about morality, about being a moral person, instantly casts you in a negative light by the perspective of most. Suddenly you're a preacher, you're uptight, you're scowling in judgment and anger.
We're seeing the consequences of this divorce from morality in the impeachment proceedings happening as I write this. An entire political party--the GOP--has totally discarded any moral notions of right or wrong in the pursuit of power, influence, and wealth. The problem is, everybody is going to pay for that, most especially the innocent and the downtrodden. Not 'is going to.' They already are.
