Avoiding cultural indecency almost cannot be done today. Not entirely. Not in America. If you restrict your TV viewing to religious programming, and maybe to Country and Western / Blue Grass music, you will come close. But any other entertainment, forget it. Even the news, and even commentary, includes topics delving into American or World cultural rot, from one viewpoint or another.
Even advertising is indecent. On TV, and even in your own email, you cannot permanently or completely insulate yourself from ads promoting Viagra or products like it. Or the side-affect warnings, like, "if you experience sudden permanent blindness or deafness, why, stop taking it, by all means, and seek medical attention." But the idiot character in the ad never wipes the stupid grin off his face.
We talked about this before; I know, I know. The Un-Godly Nation is a good example. But things have gotten worse. Pure pleasure, with sexual pleasure most prominent, has taken over the human drive to "happiness" and almost completely displaced the drive to decency, holiness and Godliness. Pleasure has become the main purpose for being. It's obvious. Just turn on your TV.
So we turn off the TV a lot, and read. Much of my reading these days, at least of new material, is done on-line. And thus I was reading at www.LifeSiteNews.com, a pretty good source of trusted news, and again, ongoing, ever increasing cultural rot seemed to predominate the news.
There was the story about Warren Buffet, the filthy-rich, Crony-Capitalist variety of Marxist, who, it is now known, gave over one billion dollars to prop-up and support the multibillion dollar American abortion industry.
We already knew that he politically supports the Marxocrat Party and its drive to sideline or destroy the Constitution. Now we know that he gives tons of money to Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes International, National Abortion Federation, DKT International, Engender Health, Guttmacher Institute and NARAL.
If you wonder how someone can be both a filthy rich Capitalist and a Marxist, at the same time, take a good long look at Warren Buffet, hypocritical Capitalist, Marxist, lover of abortion, chief sponsor and promoter of social degeneracy.
And, there was the story about Arkansas Judge Christopher Piazza who overturned the Arkansas Constitutional Amendment defining Marriage as a union between one man and one woman. He claimed to be protecting the homosexual minority, comparing their situation to that of blacks who faced "institutional racism" during the last century.
But blacks didn't suffer "institutional racism" so much as they suffered Marxocrat Party racism during the last century. And Christopher Piazza is a Marxocrat Party judge. The existence of "Institutional Racism" in America is a typical Marxocrat Party lie.
Any institutional racism existing in America was "instituted" by racist Marxocrats; any racist laws on the books were put there by racist Marxocrats; any opposition to black civil rights was championed by the racist Marxocrat Party.
The original Democrat Party never got over it's multitude of humiliating political defeats, and with each defeat, rather than learning and improving from having lost, each one fed an ever increasing seething rage and the building of a sense of revenge and vendetta. They can't handle defeat. They can't get over it. And, just count the gigantic historic political defeats they suffered in America:
After the Democrat Party went Marxist, morphing into the Marxocrat Party, the sense of revenge, hatred and seething rage went underground, as the Marxocrat Party learned to smile nice and lie. That's what all real Marxists do. A Marxist is, always, a MEJTML14 before he is anything else. Everything else is secondary to lying as needed for the cause. And the cause has become, for them, the side-lining or elimination of the Constitution.
Meaning, eventual Marxist dictatorship, and revenge.
But then there was the Emily Letts YouTube video, falsely advertised as a video made to show the world her "positive experience" of aborting her baby. She was to have her abortion video recorded for all the world to see, and to share her happiness in killing her baby in the wonderful, blessed event at an actual abortuary.
But she didn't. No part of the abortion was shown. It was just talk, talk, talk, and no action. Not even the product of the abortion. No blood. No little dismembered dead body. No body parts. And all the talk was, essentially, infantile, contradictory, blithering nonsense.
No matter how happy a face the degenerates ever try to put on abomination, they can never let you actually see it. Because they know you would recognize it for what it is, and they intend to promote it. Therefore they religiously censor any actual graphic images of it, because no normal human being would be able to stand looking at it.
If you want to get a good idea of what Emily Letts did to her own baby, take a deep breath and look at the Pro-Choice page. She won't look at it, and she doesn't really want you to look at it either. She just wants to talk nice about it.
The sad thing is she doesn't even know how disgusting she is.
The bigger question is, do we, as a nation, know how disgusting we have allowed ourselves to become?

Excellent commentary, Vic, as usual. It's ironic, though, the word "Catpcha" put up so that I could identify myself as a real person to comment on your fine piece.

Thank you. Kind of makes you wonder how much of our national soul has already been "Captcha-ed" by the evil one, doesn't it?

I remember a time, and it wasn't all that long ago, when people had more decorum and more of a sense of dignity about them. They were certainly more circumspect about what they revealed about themselves. They didn't have this compulsion we see nowadays to tell the whole world about every intimate detail of their lives. And there were certain subjects that people simply didn't discuss in polite company.
I remember when I was about twelve or thirteen years old, being sternly rebuked by my parents for merely speculating on how wealthy my Grandfather must have been!
In those days, if you asked the average man on the street what sorts of things he did with his wife when he was in bed with her, the most likely "answer" you'd get would be a fat lip, a broken nose or a broken jaw.
Now, everything's 180 degrees out of phase; people think there must be something wrong with you if you DON'T talk about things like that!
And don't get me started on celebrities "coming out of the closet". I'm currently debating with some people on Facebook (like-minded people, no less) about whether it's okay to be a fan of Ellen Degeneres even though she's a publicly-professed lesbian. (I say it isn't.) What never ceases to amaze me about people like Ellen Degeneres is how they can be so conceited and so self-absorbed that they think everyone is (or should be) interested in the most intimate details of their lives. I wasn't the least bit interested or impressed when she "came out". As far as I was concerned, she was just a comedienne, and not a very good one, either.
If we aren't on the slopes of cultural suicide, we're dangerously close.

You're right; there is very nearly no public sense of propriety any more. Anything goes, right out in public. In my opinion, the first "foot in the door" or the first "camel's nose under the tent" was the cultural acceptance of artificial contraception, which began with one very modest event in the Anglican Church in 1930. I felt moved to write more recently about the perversions that arose from that social acceptance in the Contraception Perversion page.
The real killer in all of this is, for me, not so much that we are all expected to merely tolerate the "outed" homosexuals, and other forms of open sexual sinners. We are now expected to bless them, and to not say one word against them, and to no longer publicly call sin sin. But even that is not enough. We have to welcome them everywhere, and we even have cultural, political and legal pressure applied to include them, in their determined sinfulness, into every area of life, including our Churches, including our clergy. Which is to say, we are to change our two-thousand year old plus unchanged doctrine, and change our slightly younger Scripture.
Well, I don't know about you, Jim, but I ain't gonna do it.
What's next? Are we all to join them? Is the whole world to go homo?
We need to take the government back, get it back under the Constitution, and send these abominable activities back to the shameful disgusting gutter they came from. The Constitution does not list any sexual topic anywhere in Article 1 Section 8 and so any law, executive order, bureaucratic regulation or judicial legal precedent regarding them is extra-constitutional if not unconstitutional on its face. And I'll bet it's the same with your state constitution.
That makes these topics subject to local community standards, solely.
This whole subject has got me thinking about the faith of the Founders and the Framers, and how we the people have drifted from faith since our founding, and since the ratification of our Constitution. I may do a new webpage on that this weekend if I get time.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
