There are growing pressures in our society to call good evil and to call evil good. It is a sad commentary on our times that we now have to introduce legislation which would protect the Boy Scouts of America from being coerced to lower its moral standards to accept those promoting the homosexual lifestyle. It is an upside down world when the accusation of "discrimination" can be leveled against those who are rightly able to discern between morality and immorality. The "new tolerance" of today's society means the absence of moral standards.
Tolerance is not a virtue when it allows licentiousness to increase. Freedom is not a virtue when it takes the life of an unborn child. Free speech is not a virtue when it perverts the First Amendment to promote pornography and curtail religious expression. Those in government have a responsibility to defend the principles laid down by the Founding Fathers of our nation. Government has the role to protect the weakest among us and to be a guardian against that which would tear down the moral fabric of our society.
