what is most disturbing trend in America?

  • wow, i can't even answer my own question, there are so many disturbing trends to choose from

    i dont like the way our children are not being educated properly, are taught to hate our past, pretty much... "hate Washington and Jefferson b/c they owned slaves" Well, for one thing, Washington set at least some of his slaves free at his death, i have heard. For aother, we are ALL hypocrites, but some of us try to deal with our own hypocrisy and i say this country has DONE THat... so just buzz off, all you haters

    so anyway, where was I?

    disturbing trends... 

    I don't like it that people are trying to shut up the president.. shut off communication w/ the People by  constantly criticizing his use of Twitter. I love the tweets... and no one ever claimed that policy should be made with such tweets. Give me a break. 

    But that is not the most disturbing.. 

    I guess the most disturbing would be how people are not going to Church much anymore, much less the True Church. Sometimes not so true "churches" lead one to the True Church so we can't say they are all bad..

  • All truly disturbing trends are the way people are turning away from Our Lord.  Disagreeing with the president is just expressing a view and not particularly disturbing.  Arguing over baseball isn't disturbing. 

    The acceptance of abortion is disturbing.  Along with the LGBTQ+ad nauseum is disturbing but it's really just a sign of people being given over to the lusts and their lusts aren't just evil but laughably ridiculous.

    The acceptance of divorce and remarriage is disturbing and the trend in the Vatican toward accepting this new reality is very disturbing.

    The acceptance of birth control, though antiseptic and ordinary in it's every day occurrence, is greatly disturbing.  And add in the fact that you would have a very hard time convincing people who use birth control that it is intrinsically evil is also disturbing but users of birth control could be lumped in with the LGTBQ+ad nauseum crowd.

    No doubt I left out plenty of stuff over which to be disburted.

    Ditto. That is exactly what I would have said.
    You can add divorce and adultery, fornication, immoral dress, they all go together with the above mentioned contraception, abortion, aberrosexualism, all the same dung in different packaging.

  • I think a quietly disturbing trend is personal reliance on electronic devices.
    .
    Starting with TV, when it takes over your life and you can't get through the day without your requisite stint glaring at the boob tube (aka the devil's tabernacle, so said Fr. Frank Poncelet).
    .
    Anyone who thinks that Westerns are full of admirable morality ought to have his head examined. They have total disregard for the sacredness of life and kill one another with abandon over trifles. Fornication, adultery, theft, contempt of God and His Church, Protestantism at best and even that's made into a joke -- what social redeeming value is there in that?
    .
    But now the iPhones and tablets are taking over so that people can't communicate face to face anymore. In Hawaii it will become an offense punishable by fine the first time, to be looking at a cell phone while walking across a public street. They've had too many pedestrians run over when they're paying no attention to traffic. I see this a lot, like a boy skateboarding down the sidewalk, leaps the curb and soars across the intersection without so much as looking over his shoulder at the cars coming at him. If you think that's bad, I've had mothers pushing their stroller come out without looking for cars, walking right in front of me when I'm about to turn through their cross walk. If I don't brake while cars are coming up behind me at 40 MPH, I'd run over the baby and the mother.
    .
    Then there is the horrific content of movies. There is a new movie about the Catholic martyrs of Japan that ends with one stomping on a crucifix in order to be spared torture. That ending is fake and made up for shock effect, but the rest of the film is much too disturbing for Catholics to view in the first place, even if it is what really happened. Devil worshippers enjoy making Christians feel miserable. Now their practice is becoming popularized by indecent fashions, profane language, indecent behavior and the like. This all ties in to the posts above regarding abortion, divorce, public acceptance of pederasty (alias LBGTQETC).
    .
    Read the Old Testament and see what God did to Israel when they lost the faith. Look at what God allowed to happen in Japan to the two most Catholic cities there (Heroshima and Nagasaki) after the Japanese tortured and killed Catholics for hundreds of years. God's patience with America is already unbelievably stretched thin. How it could go on much more I have no idea.

  • Yes, all those things are disturbing trends, some turn my stomach.

    Lately I've been seeing colored hair that looks more like cotton candy on girls and women of all ages, seemingly they are competing to see who can look the most ridiculous.

    Although, as disturbing as that it, it's not so bad as the whole tattoo ugliness because at least the fruits with colored hair can change their hair color back to normal in case they ever come to their senses. 
    I say that it is licit to resist the Roman Pontiff by not doing what he orders and by impeding the execution of his will; it is not licit, however, to judge, punish or depose him, since these are acts proper to a superior." St. Robert Bellarmine

    My teenage nephew has blue hair that hangs over half his face.  But that's his mother's fault for allowing it.  He was piping mad when he didn't get a job because of it and both now go around griping about how his rights are violated!  He's going to have a rude awakening in a year when his father's child support payments come to an end.  
    I've learned to keep to myself and to keep my mouth shut.

    maybe if Catholics were more into evangelization instead of just warming a pew on Sunday, noncatholics would undersstand such things (as birth control being evil)

  • i forgot the most disturbing trend of all (or way up there anyway): priests who don't act like priests--and it gets worse: priests who don't act like priests even when people ARE looking

    there are very few sincere priests... and even they don't act like a priest should sometimes...

    It wouldn't be disturbing if it wasn't an evil that can dress up as a social good. 
    As for talking to them, please try that.  You can easily do it this evening.  Go to a local bookstore or mall and start a friendly conversation.  Ask the person you are talking to about birth control and ask them why they think the Church opposes it.  Do this as a social experiment.  Then, if they seem to be pro-birth control, mention to them that using birth control gives people veto power over Our Lord's design for humanity and see if they see your point or think you are a kook.  Try it soon and tell me the results.

  • The most disturbing trend I see in North America is Selfishness.
    I am so sick of hearing I WANT and everyone is supposed to jump and provide it;  in most cases at their expense.

    I want to die, so someone else is supposed to assist me; 
    I want an abortion so someone else is supposed to do it;
    I want money without working for it, so someone else is supposed to provide it (Taxes)
    I want to mutilate my body with a sex change so someone else is supposed  to do it and pay for it
    I want to be a degenerate and everyone is supposed to like it.
    I want to behave like a slut and everyone is supposed to admire me
    I want, I want, I want, etcetera ad nauseum

    Everyone feels they have RIGHTS but no responsibilities

    Nobody seems to think of the greater good which civilized countries were founded on.
    Countries were founded with morality formed by the 10 commandments and they flourished.

    We have replaced the Great "I AM" with the disgusting I WANT.
    "Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and them that hate Him flee from before His Holy Face"  Psalm 67:2[/b]

  • Smartphones. People spend hours fiddling with the things every day. I've seen reports of people having all kinds of accidents while using them; car wrecks, walking into traffic, falling off cliffs- you name it.  I heard a priest say that now "every man carries an X-rated movie theater with him in his pocket".

    Men and women are the fundamental building blocks of civilization.  Without them there would be no possibility of children and a continuation of the species.  We can teach the other things, but not without real men and real women who will populate the earth by establishing families.

    I think that the tearing apart of the very fiber and men and women is at the root of all the other problems.

    Have you ever heard of MGTOWs?  Very sad.  It's a "movement" filled with men fed up with women.

    Black men have been doing the MGTOW thing a long time. 
    Three or four generations of black boys have no father figure at home for identity.

  • I heard a report on the radio just yesterday that was alarming.
    .
    An older man on public transportation, a train or a bus, was sitting there minding his own business when a group of children nearby started smoking marijuana. He asked them to please stop. That's when trouble broke out. The boys in the group struck at him, punching his upper body and head, and kicking his legs. This was on security video for reference. When he tried to defend himself, a girl hit him over the head with a skateboard. He fell unconscious with a head injury and had to be taken to the ER.
    .
    This was just one incident but who knows -- once it's in the news people get the idea it's okay, somehow.
