A Century of Decline
How the Church Lost Argentina
3-22-13, Foreign Policy -- According to the Pew Forum, 76.8 percent of Argentina’s population is at least nominally Catholic, but only 33 percent of Catholics interviewed in 2010 cited religion as very important in their lives, down from 40 percent in 2002 and only 19 percent in 2013.
Homosexual Marriage Rights in Argentina
In 2010, Argentina became the first country in Latin America to legalize homosexual marriage. Argentina’s laws ensuring lesbian, gay and transgender people’s right to marriage — which it extends to non-resident foreigners — and adoption are among the most liberal in the world.
Decline of Christianity in the USA
10-16-19, PewForum -- The USA shrinking white evangelical share of the population reflects both demographic changes and broader religious changes in American society where the share of all adults who identify with Christianity has declined.
Homosexual Marriage Rights in United States
In 2004 Massachusetts was the first state to allow same-sex marriage. Since then there's been a wave of legal rulings expanding the legalization of homosexual marriage in the US. In 2015 the Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage of all the nation's homosexuals.
12-31-18, DailyWire -- An estimated 60 million unborn babies have died since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973. Thankfully President Trump has been making great strides to curtail the United States from the brutal killing of unborn human babies. The total number of abortions worldwide stands just 17 million people below the total number of general deaths worldwide (59 million), which does not factor abortion into its statistic. That means the correct total number of deaths worldwide in 2018 stands closer to 101 million. Those who would accuse pro-lifers of drastically over-inflating the numbers or wrongfully equating abortions with death fundamentally deny science.
How can we deny that there is a direct parallel between mankind's sin and the consequences of that sin?
Argentina homosexuality & God? USA abortion, homosexuality & God??
Argentina may have been rich 100 years ago. She was rich in 1914 because of commodities; its industrial base was only weakly developed. The landowners who made Argentina rich were not so bothered about educating it: cheap labor was what counted. That attitude prevailed into the 1940s, when Argentina had among the highest rates of primary-school enrolment in the world and among the lowest rates of secondary-school attendance. Primary school was important to create a sense of citizenship; but only the elite needed to be well educated. [..snip]
Now in the USA too many of our youth go all through 12 grades unable to read, write and add 2 + 2. The USA is on the same path as Argentina.
God said, "I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you a sudden terror, consumption and fever that will waste away the eyes and cause the soul to pine away; also, you will sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies will eat it up." [Leviticus 26:16; Proverbs 24:22]
