Destroying our culture

To the Editor:

With tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart, I watch and listen to the endless and mindless actions that are destroying the core of our American culture.

We have killed more than 55 million babies through abortion since 1973 and the Roe v. Wade decision. Of those, 2 percent are attributed to the mother’s life being in danger, and another 2 percent are due to incest and/or rape.

We have successfully purged God from our schools, governments and the town squares. We have totally ignored the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights, the supreme law of our land, and our Founding Fathers intentions, and circumvented it with activist judges and executive orders.

We have destroyed the American family and all of the values that go along with it and replaced it with a dysfunctional “new normal” We pay absolutely no attention to fiscal responsibility.

We disregard the Ten Commandments and our faith in a supreme being because they are inconvenient to us or offensive to some people. And yet we the people of the United States dare to debate the cause of tragedies such as Sandy Hook?
