NY Times: Murder Rates Rose in a Quarter of the Nation’s 100 Largest Cities

The NY Times unsurprisingly completely misses the boat on the cause of the spike in homicides in major cities across the US.  They blame drugs.  No, drugs are just another symptom of the root cause.  The root cause is the decay in our moral foundation caused by a growing biblical illiteracy.  When the Bible and biblical principals were the foundation of our society, when they were taught in church, in school, and reinforced everywhere, we didn’t have these kinds of problems.  Whether or not you were a Christian is irrelevant.  The core principles were universal.  You were NEVER taught that it was acceptable to do drugs, destroy other people’s property, have children out of wedlock, engage in all manner of deviance and many of the other behaviors that are now tolerated.  Those who scream the loudest to remove God from our society are often the first to bemoan the inevitable results, and are ALWAYS wrong about the cause of those results.
