General Kelly: Working with President Trump to Restore the Sacred
Source: Conservative Read
OCTOBER 25, 2017 BY CHRIS GOVERNMENT
If ever there was an officer and a gentleman, it is retired Marine Gen. John Kelly.
Last week, the White House chief of staff directly addressed the offensive politicization of President Trump’s personal phone call to the grieving widow of a courageous Green Beret who gave his life in a distant land.
While much has been said about General Kelly’s moving tribute to those who pay the ultimate price for our freedom and the Gold Star families who live the continuous nightmare of their loss, his other declarations regarding our culture are worthy of our appreciation and reflection too.
“You know, when I was a kid growing up, a lot of things were sacred in our country,” General Kelly said. “Women were sacred, looked upon with great honor. That’s obviously not the case anymore as we see from recent cases. Life — the dignity of life — is sacred. That’s gone. Religion, that seems to be gone as well.”
The fact that our president’s chief of staff publicly recognizes the tragic loss when the sacred becomes disposable exemplifies why he is the right person to be advising the most powerful leader in the world.
General Kelly’s words of truth also starkly reveal what happens when “progressive” mandates permeate our culture. It is what naturally occurs when progressives control anything — things get progressively worse and chaotic.
We now live in a society where women are no longer treated like ladies, and where we are discouraged from acting like ladies too. From the loss of chivalry to the prevalence of pornography, from the increase of sex education at younger ages to the crude tone and verbiage of our discourse, it is painfully clear that the general is right.
