    Do you believe that the USA society has degraded to a level equal to that of Sodom and Gomorrah or

    is it much worse than those demented times.  Do you believe this is caused by the dangerous increase in immoral acts being supported by the government?  Do you believe it is due to the zealots that sue others so they can continue their immoral attack against the moral society?  Do you think it is due to the lack of proper righteous education through expression of positive social principles by leaders?  Do you believe you must take responsibility to fix this problem?  If not, why not?

    I do.  I know some don't think we've arrived quite yet, but I really do.  The moral decline in this country has multiplied immensely in the past 50 years. Each generation gets worse and worse. In the words of a pastor and dear friend, "What one generation begins to allow, the next one embraces wholeheartedly."

    1) Elvis couldn't shake his pelvis.
    2) Jeanie (Barbara Eden) couldn't show her belly button.
    3) Jane Russell's bra commercial was controversial. She had a bra on over a leotard.
    4) Three's Company was controversial because they implied John Ritter's character was "gay" and he wasn't. He just pretended to be so he could afford rooming with two others who were girls.
    5) Girls didn't get tattoos (which implied rebellion).
    6) We wear short shorts - razor commercial revealing girls with hot pants and heels.
    7) Then came Phil Donahue - talk about many things but still somewhat censored.
    8) Then came Oprah - talk about everything.
    9) Women watched their children and then got careers resulting in some latch key kids.
    10) The internet...well you know...good, bad and the ugly.
    11) Now what do we have?  We are up to Myley what's her name that has shocked even the unshockable Hollywood.
    12) Transgenders in California can go in either bathroom at school.
    This country basically has removed God, prayer and the pledge. We kill babies because someone may be inconvenienced.  Drugs are out of control and it used to be just "THE town drunk".  I can remember one vicious murder before the age of 14 in my area. We left the doors unlocked. Not anymore!  Corporate corruption and political corruption existed too, but not like today. Greed abounds.  Materialistic society. Oh my goodness, there is just so much....who could deny it?

      Beautiful list. It all boils down to "me, me, me" -- ego -- the heart of selfishness, the blindfold wrapped over our spiritual eyes.

      Every bit truth.Truth does not a blindfold make.hose who refuse to accept truth continue to support avenues being taken by devil ones.
      1 John 5:19
      We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.

    US society degraded? Yes! To the level of Sodom and Gomorrah? Not yet. Those 2 cities, like all of Earth before the Flood, were special cases requiring drastic action. Both of those incidents had threatened God's plan by their introduction of species that would have threatened the integrity of Homo sapiens -- the vessel chosen by God to harbor His children while the rescue mission was ongoing. You see, spirit in animal bodies is little better than spirit without a body. God needs us to have the continuity of consciousness that only these Homo sapiens bodies can give us.

    Don't blame current conditions on the government, the media, or corporations. Don't blame it on the psychopathic elite who think they are in control of planet Earth. In fact, kick all thoughts of blame out the window. Instead, take responsibility for your individual self and for the conditions on this planet.

    When you take 100% responsibility, you lose all possibility of being victim. When you take responsibility, you can't help but do things in love, humility and forgiveness.

    Obama, Cheney, Bush, Clinton, Rockefeller, Rothschild and the rest are being naughty children, but you don't murder children for being bad. You first become aware of their selfishness, and then you deprive them of their toys.

    There will come a day (perhaps very soon) when any kind of Sodom and Gomorrah or pre-Flood corruption of flesh will no longer matter. As God said in Genesis 6:3, He will not always strive with Homo sapiens. When His children have made their decision -- whether or not to come back to Him -- the rescue mission will end. Those left behind will no longer have the civilizing force of unconditional love, forgiveness, inspiration and pure creation. Decadent logic and science will descend to its lowest common denominator -- ego. Then, humanity will have only one key dichotomy -- wailing and gnashing of teeth -- victim and perpetrator.

    I hope that you and I will sufficiently give up ego (the false self that blinds us) so that we can step free of Homo sapiens as true children of God, fully capable of seeing once again, like we did in the Garden.

      2Timothy2:25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the devils trap where they are captive to do his will.

      I love your paragraph on the naughty children! lol.  I think your comment was very well expressed and I agree. I am curious. Why do you think we are not there yet?

    Society in the USA will be much better off, so will the World, when fundamentalist, judgmental, hypocritical, bible-thumping christians get off their high horse, come down to earth and get honest with themselves.
    taburkett, you are so full of your self-righteousness that you cannot be conscious of the huge piece of wood in your own eye.
    Stop concentrating on the failings of others and deal with your own.  THAT is your responsibility.

      Talk about judgmental!  That is right out rude!

      Individual responsibility is not being displayed by the corrupt evil ones. They simply continue to deny their devil plans. Those who support evil are doomed to failure in moral society. That is why they protest and demean. Propaganda is then spread.

      I completely agree jonny, people need to spend more quality time fixing their own flaws than condemning everyone else repeatedly, all the time, in every question they post.

      Psalm 37: 30 The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom and their tongues speak what is just.
      31 The law of God is in their hearts; their feet do not slip.
      39 The salvation of righteous comes from the Lord he is their stronghold in time of trouble.

      We are not talking about individiuals here. We are discussing the collective wrong of a nation. You have cast a stone at an individual which violates Hubpages rules.

      How can one cast a stone as some "thing?."  I do not cast stones at persons.Taburkett has hardly revealed the person.  Only a habit of quoting texts.  No honest debate. IMHO

      Johnny I am mistaken. I re-read the post and I get your meaning though I still think it is still more assertive than suits my comfort. You are correct, but we mustn't get so caught up with our wood that we let society become filled with beams!

      The righteous ways of God do not lead to the immoral decay witnessed inthe USA today. It is only through fellowship with the devil that the immoral society is born. Such is the attitude of many as they allow the evil to persist.

    No, it has not in my opinion reach the point of Sodom and Gomorrah yet, but we are approaching it. The problem with those cities is that there were no more righteous people left in the city besides Lot. We are not sacrificing children as a society but it does happen in our society, so we are close. All it would take is to get rid of all the good people and we would have something worse than Sodom and Gomorrah.
