We have lost our way...

So I explained the other day how, for the first 200 years of this nation, we put our priorities in the right order. We put God first, Country second, Spouse, Children, other people, other things, and then somewhere down the line... self.  So adults were not concerned with self.

And then the push came to change the definition of marriage so that people could put their own selfish desires before their nation.  It suddenly became more important for two homosexuals to get married than to protect and preserve the Constitution.  This never would have happened prior to the 1960s.  

Glenn Beck said it best.  He said:
These times have been foretold, and you don’t have to be a genius to figure out what the problems are in the country.  It’s because our society, our people, us, have become lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to our parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman.
We’re slanderers. We’re haters of good. We’re treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure much more than lovers of God. [We're] holding the form of religion, but denying the power of it.
Too many of us are blind (to the problems in the country... but) “it is the simple that will confound the wise.
We’ve closed our hearts. We’ve closed our eyes.  Almost everything has become like that homeless guy that you walk by on the street and you just don’t look at. … We don’t see things anymore. Because if we see things, it requires us to do something. And too many of us don’t know what to do.
I don't know how you can word it better than that.  I don't just want to pick on those who pushed for gay marriage, because there's a lot more going on that just that.  There are people who get divorced because they value their own happiness over the happiness of their children.  I mean, I could go on...

Believe it or not, there are things in this world that are more important than us, there are things more important than you or me.  Today people put themselves first, and everything gets all out of whack. It's all messed up.  Everybody is on edge.  Even those who are celebrating today know something is wrong with how they won.  There is this guilt.

And those who were on the losing side feel like they are getting their faces rubbed in the mud.  You have Christians being called bigots.  It's just terrible.  This has a rotten taste about it.  I'm not talking about gay marriage, I'm talking about how it was done and how it is being rubbed in.

We used to be united as a nation.  Now we are divided by groups.

We have lost our way...
