6-27-2016 –  A Word to the Wise: But we do not have to look to politics and government to see examples (and casualties) of the battle for honor. Abortion, in my estimation, is one form of dishonor visited upon the immoral person. It is not just the woman who experiences feelings of shame. After a quarter of a century counseling with every conceivable type of difficulty, I can say that abortion heads the list of offenses that people do not want to talk about. I have had couples volunteer information about spouse swapping, incest, even bestiality, and yes, in one case murder. Yet, abortion seems to be a taboo issue

6-24-2016 – A Word to the Wise: “One key battle after another fell to Washington, who just would not quit. Washington, known for his perseverance and integrity, was a role model for his officers.

6-17-2016 – A Word to the Wise: Marvin Olasky describes the environment prevalent among the British high command, where neither the ground nor the naval war was conducted by moral leaders: Montagu was a key member of a social club known as the Mad Monks of Medmenham. Medmemham was a semi-ruined abbey that a leading British politician, Sir Francis Dashwood, had purchased in the early 1750s and refurbished in pornographic splendor.

6-15-2016 – A Word to the Wise: This same situation existed with John Montagu. Montagu, First Lord of the Admiralty, who was in charge of the naval war, was deeply infatuated with his lover, Martha Ray. James Hackman, another of her lovers, wanted to elope with her. When she refused, Hackmen shot her in the face. When Montagu was informed of her death at the beginning of the campaign at Yorktown, he went to bed and refused to be comforted. Lacking leadership, Washington defeated Montage’s army at Yorktown.

6-10-2016 – A Word to the Wise: One could say that the British in large part lost the Revolutionary War because of immorality on the part of their military commanders. One American general addressing the behavior of General Sir William Howe, commander of the main British army, said: “Howe shut his eyes, fought his battles, drank his bottle, had his little whore…” Because Howe was so caught up with his immoral lifestyle, he was unable to adequately assess the battle situation leading to major defeats.

6-9-2016 – A Word to the Wise: In contrast, George Washington believed that success depended on being able to look in a mirror and see a man of honor, and this played a significant role in the American Revolution.

6-3-2016 – A Word to the Wise: Clinton’s immorality is legendary as well. Clinton wanted to be remembered as a great president. However, his immorality overshadows his accomplishments. Immorality is one sin that is remembered by future generations. Its dishonor is not wiped away. Its only answer is public remorse and repentance.
