Ever since the Protestant Reformation nearly six hundred years ago there have been people who have decided that the things we do don’t matter, that the way we treat each other doesn’t matter, and that all that matters is whether or not we believe the right things. We are reaping the harvest from that fallacious sowing right now – a selfish population controlled by the wealthy, a gutted educational system and social safety net, and people who actually feel good about that. You might say that the worst thing to happen to western civilization was the Protestant Reformation. If you are angered by that statement, stroll on over to the closest mirror and see if you like what you see there. Then watch the news and see if you like what you see there. If you like what you see in both places, congratulations – you are part of the problem.
