Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Baby Boomers to Blame for Immorality Says Lori Alexander


What follows is a typical example of how many Evangelicals view history and the world.

“Baby boomers are the generation that inherited a prosperous country and leave behind a country bankrupted and drowning in debt. They inherited strong nuclear families and leave behind a long, sad trail of divorce and broken homes. They inherited relatively strong churches and leave behind decaying and empty ones. They decimated our political and social institutions, and now, in their final act, will try to place the blame on the generation they failed to raise.” (Matt Walsh)

I am from the baby boom generation. My parents were the last decent generation. Most of them grew up in intact families, the majority of people worked hard (they had to or they would starve) and only bought what they could afford, mothers were full-time homemakers, and everyone knew what was right and what was wrong.

Then came the sexual revolution in the 60s. Monogamy was boring, women needed to become like men and get away from their homes and children, government “owed” them free stuff, and if one wasn’t happy in the marriage, then divorce and sadly, all of these things have infiltrated the churches. It was a poison (sin) that has continued to grow stronger, more evil, and more pervasive.

My parents had no clue what the “parties” were like when I was in high school. The kids were sleeping around, smoking pot, and getting drunk. Sure there were people in my parent’s generation that did these things but not on a massive scale like in my generation and every generation since then and everyone in my parent’s generation knew these things were wrong.

So our country is now like Sodom and Gomorrah. Many of us are like Lot: “For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed (tormented) his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds” (2 Peter 2:8). I was watching the playoff basketball game the other night for a few minutes and saw two wicked commercials during the game. One promoted gay marriage and had two women kissing and the other one promoted the women’s basketball league by showing pictures of the Women’s March, gay pride, and sponsored by Planned Parenthood. This torments my righteous soul (and yes, I am righteous because I am clothed in Jesus Christ).

I am grieved when I see a show (This is Us) that many Christians “love” that began with a scene of a man’s naked behind, a threesome going on in a bed, and some women standing around in bras and underwear. I quickly decided it was not the show for me since we are to dwell on the pure and lovely and “abstain from all appearance of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22). Do you abstain from ALL appearance of evil or are you entertained by it?

How bad is it going to get before Christians get rid of their televisions? How bad are public schools going to have to get before Christians pull their children out? If your children are in public schools, they are being influenced by the children around them and what these children are seeing on screens. Men kissing men will be completely normal behavior for them and so will men wanting to be women and vice versa.

    Gosh. Didn’t know my generation had enough influence to rattle the cage of Lori Alexander. I actually feel good that we do.

    Do I hear the theme song of “All in the Family” being sung by Archie and Edith Bunker?

    If television gives Lori Alexander the vapors and causes her to clutch her pearls so much, may be she should get rid of it.

    If my kuds (Gen Z) are ant indicatiin, we are fast approaching the day when seeing 2 men or 2 women kiss is just normal. I see that as progress.

    “My parents were the last decent generation.”

    Let’s think about this claim. The generation to which she refers:

    Thought segregation was good because black people are inferior.
    Pretended to tut tut at KKK lynchings whilst, not very secretly, celebrating them.
    Thought that protecting unborn cells was preferable to female servitude, depression, and despair. Plus illegal, medically unsupervised abortions.
    Thought it was a good thing that homosexuality was illegal.
    Couldn’t even spell transgender.
    Were so frightened of the SEX word that many evangelicals grew up to be sexual predators.
    Supported the educational abuse of children by teaching them creationism.
    Thought that beating of women and children was a man’s duty.

    Yes, a truly awesome generation!

    I’m not in love with my baby boomer generation either, but for reasons that have nothing to do with what this religious “expert” claims.

    My grandmother was in her 20’s during the Great Depression. She went to the nightclubs and speakeasies open at the time, and all this sordid stuff was going on, not unlike those things that Lori is harruphing about in her blog. Except, issues were swept under the rug, not dealt with or discussed, unless it was fuel for gossiping. The country wasn’t in debt until Reagan took over in 1981. Untill then, we lent other nations money. And his administration was trafficking in drugs, including coke ! She lives in an alternate reality. The Internet can be thanked for enabling people to research these things,lol.
