Family Values

These set of values reflective of orthodox Judeo-Christian morality are variously seen as a central barrier to human progress to be transcended, or a bastion of human progress to be defended.  Depending on one's perspective, this is seen as a day when humanity is becoming enlightened to move beyond many of these values - or what Albert Mohler called, "the age of the advanced meltdown" of traditional values - in what religious conservatives experience as "a dangerous moment for us all and for the culture and civilization we commonly love" and one wherein "the most fundamental values of civilization itself are threatened, and we are witnesses to one of the most comprehensive and fast-paced moral revolutions ever experienced by humanity" with a "velocity and breadth of this revolution are breathtaking, and the consequences are yet incalculable." Mohler concludes, "This society is dismantling the very structures that have allowed for the enjoyment and preservation of human liberty and respect for life. We are engaged in a head-long effort to replace the convictions that gave birth to democracy and ordered liberty with a new set of convictions that will lead to the emergence of a very different culture, society and civilization."
