It actually started in the Garden of Eden

                                                           "The Temptation" by Michelangelo
                                   Here be your true villains, (and let us not overlook the Serpent)

I like the "America Needs Fatima" blog and link to them often, but in the following post on moral decadence I believe they take a view which is insufficiently long to encompass the problem's true historical roots.   The post is called "The moral decadence we see today started with the decay of the Middle Ages."    First of all, aren't Adam and Eve the ones who really got the moral decadence ball rolling?   And allow me to note in passing that I see no reason to let the Romans and Greeks off the hook, not to mention the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians.   Finally, why is everyone so quick to blame the Middle Ages for everything?   Though humans in those days undoubtedly had their shortcomings, they did give us all those cathedrals, which ought to excuse a lot.
