Turning and turning in the widening gyre/The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold …

William Butler Yeats

San Bernardino.  Yesterday.  Mass killings have become routine.

We wade in a “blood-dimmed tide.”  A culture unglued.  Everything is “politics” and hence false and fabrication – wrong.  We are reduced.

The passionate intensity is for more of the same – godlessness, abortion, selfishness, division of culture (by race, ethnicity, gender, sexual behavior, etc.), dependence and addictions, bigger and bigger concentration of power at the expense of liberty and human health and stability. All things – all thoughts uncoupled from morality.  Virtue is lost. Marriage and family near extinction.  God evicted, given His “walking papers” – Eden laid to waste.

Decadence has come of age.  You can thank the liberals and the Left, the intellectuals, the media, government people, churchman too and silent neighbors – afraid to speak.

In my life, we’ve lived the steady growth of liberalism to come to this: “the centre cannot hold.”

We’ve left Bethlehem for Gomorrah.

Had enough?

Dear God, bring us back to you, and do it fast.
