THE BIGGER WAR -- THE CULTURE WAR:
THE WAR TO PRESERVE TRADITIONAL AMERICAN CULTURE:
MORAL CERTITUDE VERSUS POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY
By Christopher G. Adamo
Moore is, of course, the judge who refused a federal court order to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments that he installed in the rotunda of the Alabama Supreme Court. He further inflamed the situation by flatly rejecting the notion that his monument should somehow be rendered benign by the inclusion of other “historical” writings (much as courthouse Nativity displays throughout the nation are deemed constitutional only when accompanied by tributes to Rudolph and Frosty).
Elsewhere, former Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, the 9-11 Commission’s most questionable member remains firmly and immovably in place . The silence on this matter from the rest of the Commission likewise calls into question the integrity of every member. The credibility of the Warren Commission could not have been more thoroughly compromised, had Jack Ruby been instated as a member. Gorelick is the smokiest gun thus far uncovered during the Commission hearings, having authored the memo for which much of America’s lack of preparedness in the face of mounting terrorist threats throughout the 1990’s can be blamed.
Further evidence that she not only implemented the bureaucratic obstruction which hamstrung FBI and CIA operatives from sharing information of upcoming attacks, but also that she bolstered that obstruction with ensuing memos, is treated as an insignificant detail by the Commission. But of what purpose is the Commission, if not to pinpoint the flaws in American security and thus correct them in order to prevent any recurrence of the attacks? Somehow, the most obvious evidence of disgraceful government bungling, in service to some other cause (such as the likely cloaking of Bill Clinton’s underhanded dealings with China) is dismissed by the Commission as irrelevant to its work.
Worse than the brazenness with which Gorelick and her cohorts on the 9-11 Commission display their contempt for its ostensible purpose, the total absence of a deafening and universal outcry from the public indicates a far greater problem. Americans, throughout the political spectrum, are able to readily subjugate any moral outrage to the pragmatism of partisan politics, chiefly because, in this present age, morality in the American culture has all but ceased to exist. Judge Moore’s fate stands as inarguable proof. Other striking examples of the creeping moral vacuum are evident elsewhere.
In the City of Hamtramck, Michigan, Mosques have just been given the blessing of the City Council to begin publicly broadcasting Islamic “calls to prayer” over loudspeakers. To date, not a single ACLU lawyer is on record demanding, on constitutional grounds, that each of the five daily pronouncements be accompanied by references to Ali Baba or Aladdin. For Christians in the community, who may take issue with the inescapable noise, not to mention the religious effrontery it represents, the operative word from the City Council is “tolerance.” In contrast, when complaints are launched against symbols of Christianity throughout the nation, “tolerance” is immediately abandoned and supplanted by the interests of those who “take offense.”
It is crucial to understand here that the events occurring in Hamtramk do not represent some new and radical change on the part of Muslims, who are merely doing what their religion has commanded them to do for well over a thousand years. Rather, the situation has resulted from a major lapse in an American culture that would formerly have been in place to protect its people from any such incursion.
Military “might” cannot, by itself, preserve the heritage and culture of a people. Americans, having abandoned their spiritual roots during the past four decades, are susceptible to cultural invasion, not on the basis of the invader's strength, but of their own spiritual weakness, which itself results from the rampant moral ambiguity being foisted on them in the media, and throughout every level of the public education system.
Saddam Hussein and the Taliban are gone. America’s skyscrapers and airways appear to have been rendered fairly safe during the past three years. But, on another, more significant front, and with no guarantee of American victory, the real war rages on.
