Crisis of Values

Culture of Responsibility is Culture of Life by Star Parker

  • Maybe our first black president doesn't know that, despite blacks being just 12 percent of the American population, black babies constitute 37 percent of all our aborted children. One of every two black pregnancies is aborted.

  • In the words of my friend, the Rev. Clenard Childress, "the most dangerous place for an African American to be is in the womb of their African American mother."

  • In his inaugural address, Mr. Obama appealed for "a new era of responsibility," bemoaned "greed and irresponsibility" and "failure to make hard choices."

    But, Mr. President, if you condone a culture that has no sense of awe and responsibility toward the greatest of all miracles and mysteries -- life itself -- how can you expect responsibility elsewhere?

  • Can it be accidental that along with the millions of abortions that followed the Roe v. Wade decision, the stability of American families spiraled downward, divorce rates increased, and out of wedlock birth rates skyrocketed to where today four of ten babies are born to unwed mothers?

  • For those who claim that Christian conservatives care only about abortion and gay marriage and are indifferent to social issues such as poverty, know that they are all one and the same issue.

  • Understand that our crisis is one of values. Restore law that protects all life. And free at risk children from the tyranny of government schools where they are taught moral relativism. Allow these children the freedom to go to church schools.
