From ChristianGovernance eletter, Sept. 11, 2012
Many of the problems in our society are symptomatic of the rejection of personal responsibility. Because of the importance of personal responsibility or self-government, I find that a much more important issues to address than the symptoms, as serious as the symptoms are. The following letter from Quebec demonstrates our culture’s hostility to personal responsibility. It also reveals that this despicable attitude is the attitude of today’s adults. It’s not a teen problem. The teens exhibit it because their parents are tolerating and embracing this cult of irresponsibility. Today’s youth are the third generation of Canadians who have been at war with the principle of self-government under God. (I won’t embarrass the letter-writer by including her name here.)

Glee photo shoot called ‘creepy’
Reuters News Agency
I came across Miley Cyrus’s video “7 Things” yesterday. It would be considered tame today. And in terms of sexuality, it was. But it was a disgusting video. It dealt with the torment that girls feel when a guy they like breaks up with them. There are numerous lamentable things about the centrality our infantile culture places on romance when it comes to relationships. It is a leading contributor to this on-again, off-again approach to relationships that shreds people’s hearts. It’s incredibly destructive, foolish and sinful. But what is most offensive about Miley Cyrus’s video, showing how morally backward she is, is that her female props in the video, the girls who were acting out the loss of a boyfriend and the emotional turmoil, all looked like pre-teens.
