Right now, America is looking for a short-term fix to its problems — even if that means changing the definition of right and wrong.
"We are a fast-food nation, and so whatever is expedient today is okay. I'm going to give you an example of this like I've never heard before. This is Pastor Darrell Scott," Glenn said.
Pastor Scott spoke with CNN this week, talking about morality and principles.
Morality changes with the times in America, what was once immoral now is viewed as moral, and even with character evaluation, character evaluations are subjective. There's no objective definition of character. And so, you know, as times change, people's opinions change, and once again, what we thought was intolerable has now become tolerable to the extent that it's hard to judge an individual, because you don't have a clear moral compass, I mean, a clear compass as to what morality is these days.
"That was his excuse for voting for Donald Trump. Morality changes," Co-host Pat Gray said.
Unfortunately, Pastor Scott is dead wrong.
"People's view of it does [change], but morality never changes," Pat said.
Glenn offered a perfect example.
"Slavery was wrong back in the 1700s. It's wrong today. Man's understanding of what is right and wrong has changed, but morality has never changed," Glenn said.
Glenn went on to say that our idea of what constitutes character has been obliterated.
"I don't think anybody is saying, 'No, character is based on different things now.' They just don't care about character. Character has not changed. Character is built upon the things of doing the hard things when it hurts you and doing the hard things because they are right when no one is looking. That's what character is. And that's never changed," Glenn said.
In today's world, true character is so rare, you know it when you see it, because it stands out. And many try to belittle it or tear it down. Why?
"The only reason why you say things about people of character is because they make it harder for you to live the way you want to. Because you have this glowing example of somebody who's living that way, and you don't want to believe that they are real. You need to call them a hypocrite, because it's not that you can't live that way. You don't want to live that way," Glenn said.
Progressives caught onto this tactic long ago.
"That's why Progressives work so hard to disparage the Founders, because [they] can't live up to them," Pat said.
"Right, and to disparage people of real character. That's why Donald Trump called Ted Cruz 'Lying Ted'...got to destroy it. And it's easy to buy that because you don't want to believe that anybody really could tell the truth."
