Another post I appreciate:
What will be the consequences of our twisting society's moral bearings? The greatest consequence is that the only innocents among us--children--will be raised with a perverted sense of right and wrong that prevents them from making correct moral decisions. This toxic moral environment voids the purpose of creation. Whenever a society reaches the point where they openly embrace sin and invert the moral compass, God intervenes and destroys them in order to restore an environment where it is possible for people to learn to distinguish between good and evil.
