Through a friend’s post, I found this study on gallup.com. This indicates that for the first time since this poll began in 1995, more Americans would define themselves as pro-life than pro-choice. This is very interesting considering the majority of the country just elected the most pro-choice administration in history. I wonder if this will have implications or ramifications in the next presidential election and the mid-term elections in 2010. It will be interesting to see for sure.
The lost story in this past year’s election cycle was the sweeping victory for morality across the country. One simple example is the passage of Proposition 8 in California. Remember, this is CALIFORNIA!!! Not a state that typically clings to “God, guns and religion.” Many other “moral” victories across the country were widely ignored by the mainstream media.
All of this could be an indication that Americans are waking up to morality. Or, it could be a blip on the radar when history records our moral decline and eventual demise. For now, we’ll chalk it up as interesting and encouraging news. I hope the trend towards morality continues and we can correct our path of “Slouching Toward Gomorrah.”
