There’s always plenty about which to grumble. A stagnant economy. Encroaching Big Government. Soaring federal debt and uncontrolled entitlement spending. Marriage deconstruction. Family breakdown. Over 40 percent of American children born without married parents. Coarsening popular entertainment. A post-modern amoral culture that demonizes virtue. Continued abortion on demand.
Internationally, plenty of evils brew. Iran’s crazy mullahs may yet get their nukes. Brutal wars rage in Afghanistan, Syria, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and several other hot spots. Radical Islam captivates tens of millions. Millions of Christians are routinely persecuted. Anti-Semitism persists. Drug lords bankroll billions while killing countless souls and bodies. Millions of women and children are sexually trafficked internationally.
