Signs of the times

Given recent revelations about former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, this pretty much sums it up:

If I understand the history correctly, in the late 1990s, the President was impeached for lying about a sexual affair by a House of Representatives led by a man who was also then hiding a sexual affair, who was supposed to be replaced by another Congressman who stepped down when forced to reveal that he too was having a sexual affair, which led to the election of a new Speaker of the House who now has been indicted for lying about payments covering up his sexual contact with a boy.

Yikes.

There is nothing to indicate things have improved, morally, over the past two decades, either.  America has often been compared to Rome: its power, influence… and depravity.  It would appear we are following that empire’s trajectory, but on an accelerated schedule.  Our nation faces a clear choice at this point in its history: repentance or ruin.
