This Just In: Americans Embrace Evil! From Agape Press comes this cheery editorial about the moral decline of the United States. It's author is a fellow named Michael DePrimo, and here are his ruminations on the thorny question of whether Americans hate evil:

We as a society today do not hate evil. On the contrary, we embrace it. This is seen not only in the acceptance and celebration of homosexuality, but also in the country's acceptance of abortion and pornography. It is seen, too, in the rejection of the knowledge of God. In the past 40 years, prayer and Bible study have been removed from public schools; the truth of Creation has been replaced with the theory of evolution; the Ten Commandments and nativity scenes have been banned from the public square; and a federal court of appeals has stricken the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance. All because men love darkness, and hate light. This is what the Apostle Paul meant when he said, in the end times, the enemies of Christ would "glory in their shame" (Phil. 3:19). And same-sex marriage may be the ultimate shame because it is a blasphemous counterfeit of the God-ordained institution of heterosexual marriage which, Paul tells us, is a temporal manifestation of the eternal mystery of the union of Christ and His Church (Eph. 5:31-32). (Emphasis Added)

Yeah, it's a scientific dispute. And I've got a bridge to sell you.

I encourage you to read the whole article, but resist the temptation to dismiss it as a parody.
