    That the most immoral group of leaders in a long long time claim the moral high ground.

    I think the Christians that attach their religious fervor to Trump hurt Christianity more than anything.

    They disagree because they ignore how their actions look to others, which is largely because they are less empathetic with their love of Supply Side Jesus and all. But Trump isn't the cause of this, they were causing a downward trend with preachers flying around in private jets and living in mansions.

    The entire last paragraph maybe? Blaming secularism for depression and suicide?

    AG Barr covers this very same thing, in detail here (Although the claim that he "insulted" anyone is a curious claim....i did not detect any insults....) Check it out below.

    My question(s) to you, after you watch it, is:

    Did he lie?

    Do you disagree with any of his points?

    Barr shouldn't be taken seriously because if he genuinely cared about morality, then he wouldn't be supporting Donald Trump in the first place. He doesn't have any moral credibility to point his finger at anyone else in judgment and blame secularists for moral upheaval. It's virtue-signaling at its finest.

    Hedonistic nihilism is the logical conclusion of materialistic ideologies. I don't see anything extreme about the idea itself.

    Everything is well as long as you have someone else to blame for your misery.

    Which part of this, quote:

    “We see the growing ascendancy of secularism and the doctrine of moral relativism,” he said. “Basically every measure of this social pathology continues to gain ground.”

    He described several social issues as “consequences of this moral upheaval.”

    “Along with the wreckage of the family, we are seeing record levels of depression and mental illness, dispirited young people, soaring suicide rates, increasing numbers of angry and alienated young males, an increase in senseless violence and a deadly drug epidemic.”

    “This is not decay. This is organized destruction. Secularists and their allies have marshaled all the forces of mass communication, popular culture, the entertainment industry and academia, in an unremitting assault on religion and traditional values.”


    Isn't true?
