Sodom, Gomorrah & Our Western Civilization

TO LOSE THIS ELECTION . . . IS TO WELCOME THE BEGINNING OF THE END.

I WAS WRONG:

When Howard Stern first came on the scene, I figured he would come, go, and be forgotten. BUT I WAS WRONG. His audience, which thrives on TITILLATION, FILTH & HUMILIATION . . . is huge.

When GANGSTA RAP became so popular amongst Black youth, where White people, but especially the police became DEFAMED, INSULTED & THREATENED, I also figured this would be a flash in the pan. AGAIN I WAS WRONG.

I DETEST THE WORD . . . EVEN IN AN EDITORIAL:

When an incredibly successful and talented Black Actor . . . Denzel Washington won VAST ACCLAIM and an Academy Award for Best Actor, for his movie TRAINING DAY, I was flabbergasted, since he used the word NIGGER multiple times in each sentence throughout the entire movie.

Not only was I appalled that this gifted man would stoop so low as to use this VILE word, I was MORE appalled that he was still held to the highest esteem by Blacks and Whites in spite of it.

I ASSURE YOU . . . If a Jewish Actor was to star in a movie like Training Day, used KIKE instead of NIGGER, to describe Jewish characters in the movie – his or her acting career would be done, certainly within the vast majority of the Jewish Community. AND CERTAINLY BY ME!

THEN THERE’S THE INTERNET:

The GREATEST creation for the distribution of information EVER, is the Internet, also proving at the same time to be the WORST tool for the dissemination of HATE, LIES, DEMAGOGUERY, FILTH AND IGNORANCE.

CABLE AND REALITY TV:

Cable TV, in the name of BRAVO, HBO, NETFLIX etc, have reached into the dark recesses of our minds, producing incredible series such as the Game of Thrones, where extreme violence is par for the course, including any and all kinds of public sex with no holds barred, which are now “NORMAL”.

But I do have to admit, that I too like the Game of Thrones. So I guess I’m also guilty. But, at the very least, I keep it all in perspective.

THE OTHER INSANITY IS REALITY TV . . . where MANY TENS OF MILLIONS of people live their lives VICARIOUSLY, through pretend TV, and the screwed-up lives of others.

AND ALL OF THE PRECEDING . . . IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG:

BUT HERE WE ARE . . . near the end of this road, approaching a fork that will lead us into a new era of knowledge and success . . . or ignorance and disaster. And as I see it, we are headed for SODOM AND GOMORRAH.

HISTORY SEEMS TO ALWAYS BE REPEATING ITSELF:

I AM NOT A RELIGIOUS MAN . . . but the Bible is a great BLUEPRINT for values, since the stories that date back thousands of years were not written in a vacuum. I believe they are indeed an expression of embellished history of the times.

THE BIG QUESTION . . . is whether we will repeat the same or similar mistakes and failed values we made throughout history, which to my way of thinking, because of everything that is happening around us, and our DIMINISHED VALUES, is an inevitability from which there will be no escape for most of us.

BUT LIKE LOT . . . in the Biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah, who fled the nightmare before the predicted destruction, we too must think about tomorrow, which might be far closer than any of us would like to believe, SO WE CAN PREPARE OURSELVES for what might very well will become the inevitable.

WHENEVER I THINK WE’RE DOING BETTER AS A SOCIETY . . . REALITY STRIKES:

I’m really disappointed in how many people are turning to innuendo, hearsay and demagoguery through BLOGS and the Internet. People should understand that politics is a rough game where truth, honesty and honor do not exist. IT’S ALL ABOUT WINNING.

IT’S ALL ABOUT POLITICS:

What is said about so many people, whether it is insinuations about Carly Fiorina’s 6-year tenure as CEO of Hewlett Packard, during knock ‘em down Board-Room Battles with men who wanted her job, or just wanted to have her removed for whatever reason, to those who’ve accused Fiorina of supporting Islam, by taking snippets of her speech out of context, or even Megyn Kelly’s interview with Howard Stern, or Trump’s supposed rape of his first wife . . . are indictments no one should take as the HOLY GRAIL.

THIS ISN’T JUST ANY ELECTION . . . THIS IS FOR THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD:

This isn’t American Idol, it’s not the Game of Thrones, it isn’t the Hunger Games . . . nor is it a game where we get to come back and play again if we lose.

TO LOSE THIS ELECTION . . . IS TO WELCOME THE BEGINNING OF THE END:

As I wrote in my last Editorial . . .

DON’T SMELL THE SIZZLE . . . WHEN BUYING THE STEAK:

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

  • Happy New Year Howard to you and your beautiful wife!

    I like Ted Cruz, too! He has that fire in the belly and that is what we need!

  • Christianity and God of the Bible will stand for ever.. I’m not religious either, but I follow the God of the Bible who sent His Son Jesus to die for the sins of mankind. I’m a believer in Jesus Christ and yes you are right.. Who predicted the destruction of Sodom and Gemorrah? It was God Himself, who then destroyed it. The only way you can get ready for the current destruction of America is to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.

  • Just watched Greta, Trump was on speaking to an audience. Ques.asked will you run 3rd. party? Trump reply only iF I’m treated unfairly by Fox the Media. honest and he just wants a fair shake. A poll was taken on Greta’s site DO YOU LIKE TRUMP MORE OR LESS AFTER SPEAKING! ANS. more 82%—Less 18% Trump is paying for his campaign, he’s honest, that I vouch for. He must want this nomination more than I thought possible to go to such extremes. Am I accepting of his comment? “YES”!

  • A while ago, I believe that I had responded to one of your editorials and had referred to Sodom and Gomorrha. Also, ‘While Rome burns, Nero is playing his fiddle’! Yes, America IS headed in a very wrong direction, with the help of modern technology (internet), drugs, etc… Without sounding like a ‘prude’, sexually, anything goes now! There are no more moral values–hence, the reason for more sex crimes and other type crimes! There is also a GROSS lack of SELF-RESPECT and RESPECT of others. AMEN

  • Our son came for a visit to Israel from his home state, New York, USA. After a year that we have not seen him I cannot recognize him. The rampant negative influence on him is all evident. And I am by far not protesting that we in Israel are clean from bad influences either. Somethings gave gone very wrong and we all must try to correct course before it will be too late.

  • Howard, you say that, “I am not a religious man.” You are Jewish, with your Jewish belief but, [acting] as best as you can.
    Written in the Book of James 1: 27:
    [Pure and undefiled religion] before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
    One’s belief is the condition of his actions, religion.
    But this column describes right-to-the-point, that the condition this nation is in! “God SAVE America”, is the only way.

  • I do not know if you will even read the New Testament, but I will give you a direct quote by Jesus from Luke 17:26-30.
    And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man…
    Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot…
    But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven…
    Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. Pls get Firorina’s REAL view of pagan moon god worshiping cult of islam.

  • Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
    America has been warned thru the example of what God did to Sodom. Jesus said, ‘pray that you be accounted worthy to escape all these things coming upon the earth’. Could planet X be the answer of Christ’s warnings? See you-tube ‘4 NASA’.

  • I remember reading Francis Schaeffer in the seventies. His thesis was exactly as you are saying. Actions and thoughts have consequences that can be foreseen. His was not a pretty foreboding. But, God is showing the rest of the created universe that love can eventually win through, given a few million years :-). He’s prepared for the worse to show what he can do. Are we?

  • So today men and women are so busily engaged in doing the good things of life they have no time to worship God. They are so busy building homes for themselves on earth that they are neglecting to secure a home in heaven. They are more anxious that their children should make a good match on earth , than they be united to the Lord. They are so much concerned about their case in Court, that they have forgotten that they must stand at the Jugement Bar of God. Rev. Clarence Larkin 1918. End Times

  • Unfortunately the press and media will have far too much say in the comming elections. And which party owns the majority of the media?
    Impressionable people will be swayed by what is said, not what is true. Doubtful if your “average voter” could tell the difference.

    Kenneth Oldfield, Hasselt, Belgium
  • If we’re willing to believe Holy Writ, & further, if we believe that “mystery Babylon” can only be the USA (Rev. 18), then America has seen her best days, will first be neutered financially (economic collapse, $18 trillion & counting) followed by political/military collapse. Like it or not, believe it or not, America is toast, soon to be burned toast, like Sodom and Gomorrah. This came as a shock for a loyal old war vet who loves my country, willing to give the ultimate sacrifice for freedoms.

  • I sadly have to agree but I have to wonder where are our spiritual leaders? I have been a Christian all of my life and have seen a dramatic change in the attituded of the churches. What has happened to the 10 Commandments that were the foundation of my childhood? How many of our children can recite the commandments? Christianity teaches love but also fear of the consequences of out behaviour. I don’t hear much of this from the church leaders, why?

  • We are truly living in “biblical times.” We still sacrifice infants on the altar of Baal Melqart, only we now call it “abortion.” Our religious leaders have failed us. Our technology – our Tower of Babel – has failed us. We don’t care about our failed economy, we try instead to “fix” the sun and moon and climate…we’ve replaced G-d with an image of ourselves. We have turned beauty into ugliness. If we don’t redeem ourselves soon, we are LOST.

  • OMG! And I always liked Denzel Washington. Now, I will not think so any more.
    Do you ever feel that Armageddon is just around the corner.

    Madelene Gilligan, Plantagenet, Ontario
  • Yes, we are our trail’s end, or new road. If the Republican establishment uses their dirty tricks to oust Trump, then we get Jeb Bush. Wheter another Bush, or Hillary it won’t make a darn. We will go down in flames. At that point, yes, we need to start loking for a safe haven and it won’t be the USA. Trump can do the job. Will america let him? Remember “Read my lips. No new taxes? then Bush raised taxes first thing, increased entitlements, raised the debt, etc. Do we want his heir?

    Peggy Johns Bland, San Antonio, Texas USA
  • The problem with our culture is that those who claim relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, have left our first love and are playing with fire due to selfishness. When God’s people get their hearts in the right place, then it may not be too late for Him to have mercy on us and forgo the judgment we deserve and which has been assigned to the types of sin we willingly commit and allow in our nation. Religion is a dead end. Relationship with God is our Hope.

  • I have found this article of yours to be exactly how I feel! And in reading some of the comments, I’m not the only one! If only people in the States could see this! I am a 6th generation Floridian. It disturbs me to no end to see what it happening to our country! The only thing I can do is vote. I wish there were people living here now that understands the catastrophe we are headed for just because they can only think of us four and no more! Its like they live in a bubble!!

  • Very interesting Howard—your editorial title and reference to old testament ‘Lot’. My last name is spelled ‘Lott’—but as far as the family knows we came from poor potato famine Irish with a little American Indian and a bit of Scotch thrown in. I am also a Southern Baptist—part of a small protestant congregation here in a sea of Catholicism in rural Mexico—but we are staunch supporters of Israel and politically conservative—as are many of my Catholic friends.

  • It seems patently obvious that the real threat to Western civilization is our birth rates. At present all white countries in the world produce only 1.1 to 1.5 children per female. this gives us a half life of 50 years. In 200 years whitey for all practical purposes will be virtually extinct. the math is pretty simple. I recall Boumedienne telling already 30 or more years ago, referring to Europe. We will conquer you with the wombs of our women. How come nobody refers to that anywhere??
