Are You a Traditionalist?

By
Mortgage and Lending

This was recently written by my brother-in-law, Michael Starvaggi, a Real Estate Attorney. I wanted to share it with you. 

A traditionalist is a person who . . .

  • believes that science has improved our lives greatly, but cannot explain everything.
  • believes that there is an arrogance to the notion that we, as human beings, can understand how and why we are here.
  • sees a need for God in our everyday lives.
  • agrees that previous generations may have been too strict, but also thinks that our society goes too far in its depictions and discussions of sex, violence, promiscuity.
  • thinks that decency, morality and respect should not be treated as quaint old fashioned concepts but should always have a place in our culture.
  • believes that our society has gotten too far away from many of the basic values that make us noble.
  • feels that the scorn with which traditional values are treated is one of the greatest threats to our society.
  • sees America as gradually going the way of Rome - where power and freedom devolved into decadence and irresponsibility.
  • believes wholeheartedly in freedom of the human conscience and believes that change must come from human free will and not from governmental action
  • is offended at the disrespect shown to Christianity in our country.
  • believes that the media, which represents such a small fraction of the country, has become entirely too biased and no longer should presume to speak for the country at large.
  • disagrees with celebrities who make elaborate fortunes in this country that they could never have made anywhere else in the world and then use their celebrity status to criticize our country in foreign lands.

Are you a Traditionalist too?  If you are, don't be ashamed.  Let people know how you feel.

The best way to do so is by your words, and more importantly, your actions. 

Another way might be to visit our Web site, www.proudtobeachristian.com, where 10% of all proceeds from Proud to Be a Christian (or PTBAC) merchandise proclaiming your pride will go to Christian charities.
