Western Civilization is dead for two fundamental reasons:
1. America is no longer an exceptional nation due to the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion back in 1973 and their recent (June, 2015) ruling redefining marriage to mean anything to everybody.
2. With his encyclical, “Laudato Si,” Pope Francis severed any rational tie between the Catholic Church and the Western Civilization it spawned.
America was founded on the exceptional understanding that all just law must be based on “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.”
And, “that they (each human being) are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The mother’s so-called “right to choose,” is actually the legal sanction of the mass murder of unborn human beings. Such a “right” actually deprives the unborn human being of his authentic right to life.
Marriage, for all of human history, has conformed to human nature, male and female, until now.
Marriage, the fundamental unit of any culture, any time, any place, now does not conform to human nature in Western Civilization.
That is because “gay” or homosexuality is a fundamental disorder in truth, and a mere sexual preference at the very least.
Disorders and preferences are not what define human nature.
Thus American law no longer conforms to human nature and is therefore fundamentally unjust.
This places America with every other nation on Earth and in human history.
Consequently, America cannot be considered exceptional any longer.
Laudato Si, a recent encyclical published by Catholic Pope Francis and addressed to all humanity, castigates mankind for its profligate lifestyle and blames human activity for “climate change.”
Since change is the nature of climate, blaming the nature of climate on human activity is a big Dumbzilla.
Further, since there isn’t any difference between Pope Francis’ lifestyle and that of any other civilized human being, his castigating humanity for its profligate lifestyle is pure, high grade hypocrisy.
So with the Pope of the Catholic Church now a champion of hypocrisy and the big Dumbzilla called “climate change,” Western Civilization has completely lost its anchor to justice and reason.
The only question now concerns whether the collapse of Western Civilization will be a long whimper of decades or centuries or a bang of economic catastrophe and social strife.
