MORALS?

Nothing is politically right that is morally wrong.

Carved on the ceiling of the Missouri Senate Chamber

 

The Democrat (Dec 21) reported that Les Kristt, Secretary of the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce, “said there were only two issues with gambling; morals and economics.  He argued that gambling is no longer a moral issue, as churches and synagogues have long paid their bills through bingo. New York State has every conceivable lottery game available.” Are we to believe that church and state approval decides morality? With this kind of reasoning we should all approve: abortion, prostitution , gay marriage, violence, sex and profanity on TV, pornography on the Internet, genicide and euthanasia  - each of these is approved by some government and/or church. Perhaps another standard should be considered. Just because some church (religion) or a government or the people approve does not mean that God approves. Greed, lust, pride, selfish ambition and envy are often motivators for each of these. If you do not believe in God look at the facts!  Countless studies have shown that gambling destroys individuals and families, increases crime, promotes prostitution and drug use and has long lasting harmful effects on children. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure this one out. Check it out - http://www.ncalg.org/; http://laplaza.org/~totem/gam1.html. Perhaps it is time for a class action lawsuit. Are we a society where there is no “right” or “wrong”? Where there is no “truth”?  Where everyone does what is right in his own eyes?  With freedom comes responsibility. Our representatives are expected to be responsible.  “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” ( Edmund Burke)  Rise up good men and do something!  What if the Bible is true?
