20. Drugs/Sex/Atheism. Promiscuity & Drugs Are Associated With Being "Left"
this bothers me a great deal. Same with atheism.

And that many on the Left laud these as part of being "Liberal" is disturbing.

I am not a prude nor a virgin when it comes to drug use. But empty sex for self-gratification and habitual drug abuse are counter productive.

Of course people who engage in such behavior may have an essential "right" to do so. But it DOES effect others personally and society as a whole.

As for atheism... people who don't recognize that we are each part of a greater whole need to expand their outlook. God is the word used to reference Consciousness of Unity....
