Recently the president of the United States came out in support of homosexual marriage, celebrating personal preference as the definition of morality, not the Judeo-Christian ethic, the bedrock of our society for hundreds of years. And the chairman of the Jewish Democratic Council applauded the move, saying it was an expression of the Jewish value of tikkun olam, repairing the world.
I feel alone on a bridge with nowhere to turn. I hold my hands to my face in horror and scream.
I sense, in fact, that I am walking down the street of history with my Judeo-Christian friends and notice that the light of a great nation has begun to set. Words of mockery and distain pour forth from the bastions of secularism, the media and university, which set the tone for the nation. We stop and lean against the walls of our houses of worship feeling unspeakably alone. Then we hear our souls offer a primal, infinite scream.
May God, again, heed our cry.
