#1 We are desperate for life and the love of others. We need people and institutions to help us navigate the world, to help us see that we have purpose, to help us understand right from wrong, and to imbue us with a sense of moral clarity that will hold us up during the desperate times we will all face.
True, as long as it is up to the individual to choose with whom one wants to associate.

#2 Destroy the family, abandon the community, raze the church to the ground. What could go wrong?
The commies have been tearing down Western Civ ever since they gained any power. You'd think by their repeated failures they'd be held accountable as much if not more than Western Civ for all the imperfections and shortcomings.

#3 The churches have only contributed to this decline. If parents and teachers today look at evangelicals and parishes funny, it's because they were busy buying themselves summer homes and retreat centers with contributions and tithes of influential elites whom they then had to appease by preaching compromised doctrine. The result was a hybrid of christianity and utter hedonism, like the prosperity bullshit.
So many cults and leaders abused the trust of unwitting, gullible people and sullied the Name of God with their filth, teaching the sayings of men for the word of God. It is no surprise that a parent will not let you talk to their children about Christ, or the Bible. On the one hand the people have snake handling idiots with no teeth, and on the other they have a progressive faggot who needs a private jet for serving Gawd. There is just no real 'sound doctrine'.
The churches, pastors, the compromised 'Bible Scholars' are to blame for this loss of real religion. What can the people trust if the teachers hold the truth in unrighteousness ?
