None dare call it evil

Do you beieve in evil? The devil? If not, what do you call this:
  "What is reprehensible," St. Augustine wrote, "is that while leading good lives themselves and abhorring those of wicked men, some, fearing to offend, shut their eyes to evil deeds instead of condemning them and pointing out their malice."

Keith Throckmorton, a newspaper colunist and lay church leader, writes what is obvious:
 
Christianity is in a severe state of decline in America today, which has resulted from an overall turning away from the Holy Scriptures and turning more to worldly idols and immorality as identified in the Bible. Once a person is convinced that Christianity has been wrong about sexual sin and abortion, etc., for 2000 years, it becomes easier to accept that Christianity has been false about other things. Yet, we know to love our neighbors and not judge their lifestyles.

"Deliver us from evil," Jesus instructed and we recite with little apprehension of the implication.

"We live in an age in which it is no longer possible to be funny. There is nothing you can imagine, no matter how ludicrous, that will not promptly be enacted before your very eyes, probably by someone well known."
~ Malcolm Muggeridge
