How America Lost its Soul – The Moral and Intellectual Collapse of the United States

What happened in the United States that got us to this point in history? There are lots of theories and avenues to the insanity. But if there is one institution that’s done it, it’s our educational system. Most schools in the United States – from kindergarten through the graduate level, including law schools – have jettisoned any remnant of a biblical moral order. In fact, to be considered a “modern,” this must be done:

“In polite society, the mere mention of the Bible often introduces a certain measure of anxiety. A serious discussion on the Bible can bring outright contempt. . . .

Atoms do not love other atoms.

In order to accomplish his stated goals, Rorty, like so many before him, had to rid the world of Christianity, and the university was the place to bring about its destruction…
