It is said that when a society loosens its code of morality and ethics, it begins a downward spiral into “anything goes” incivility and depravity.
Sociologists have a fancy word for the phenomenon: anti-nomianism. The Left call it “moral relativism” — which means there’s no transcendent moral good or bad; what’s good or bad is that which is good or bad for me. Both anti-nomianism and moral relativism refer to the same thing — the absence of common norms and standards governing human behavior.
Here’s a shocking and grotesque example of what anti-nomianism leads to.
An apparently sane woman diner in a Utah restaurant had her twin daughters go potty right there at the table.
As reported by Snejana Farberov for the UK’s Daily Mail, Sept 5, 2012, Kimberly Decker was having lunch at the popular Thanksgiving Point Deli in Lehi, Utah, when she witnessed the incident at a nearby table.
“I noticed that this lady was having her two…twins, two little girls about two-and-a-half years old, sitting on what I thought were booster seats,” Decker told the station KSL.
But after taking a closer look, Decker realized the “booster seats” were child port-a-potties. The mother had her twin girls use portable bathrooms as they ate in the crowded restaurant.
Decker said the mother “had to undo the [toddlers] jumpsuits, and take them all the way down so they were completely nude, with the jumpsuits down to their ankles just eating their chicken nuggets, sitting on little toddler potties.”
Decker took a picture and posted it on Facebook.
Thanksgiving Point spokeswoman Erica Brown said they received several complaints from patrons who had witnessed the unsavory scene. But the eatery’s staff did not realize what was happening in the dining room until it was all over. Brown said they would have asked the mother to leave and take the potty training into the restroom because “I think state and local health codes were probably an issue, as well as just social norms.”
The spokeswoman “thinks” kids going potty smack-dab in the middle of the restaurant is a state and local health code “issue”?
Good grief. Our world has gone mad….
“During the next hundred years, the question for those who love liberty is whether we can survive the most insidious and duplicitous attacks from within, from those who undermine the virtues of our people, doing in advance the work of the Father of Lies. ‘There is no such thing as truth,’ they teach even the little ones. ‘Truth is bondage. Believe what seems right to you. There are as many truths as there are individuals. Follow your feelings. Do as you please. Get in touch with your self. Do what feels comfortable.’ Those who speak in this way prepare the jails of the twenty-first century. They do the work of tyrants.” ―Michael Novak
