I have to hand it to Ingrid because sometimes she surprises me. She wrote a great article on F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda. Her comments on the moral slide in America caught me off guard, because I’ve long thought the same thing. Here’s a quote:
In reality, a case could be made that America was in serious moral crisis even before it formally became a country. By all accounts the era of the American Revolution was one of moral decadence within cities, despite the Christian teachings of churches throughout the colonies.
I’ve gotten the feeling from organizations like Focus on the Family that in the 1950s, we were this great Christian nation. And yet we had all kinds of moral discrepancies, like racism. Sure, just about everyone went to church, but a whole lot of people ignored the Truth.
Thank you, Ingrid, for writing this article.
