About the Book

Our country is facing dangers from the threat of terrorism. That threat is obvious to most people and is being fought vigorously by our government. Another threat, which is subtle but may be just as dangerous, is taking place from within the country. In the past fifty years, the United States has undergone cultural changes, which have led to a new definition of morality. The danger of this shift toward a secular morality is undermining the moral principles our founding fathers intended as a cornerstone to our Constitution and our laws. In recent years, the shift toward this new definition of morality has been accelerating and exacerbating. In this book, an examination is made of the new secular principles being advanced, and the role many prominent groups, including government, are playing in these moral changes. In this book, a review will also be made, of the environment in which secular morality prospers.

About the Author

George Pfautsch spent most of his working life as a financial executive for a major forests products and paper company. His final years at Potlatch Corporation were spent as the Senior Vice-President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer. He readily admits that his background has absolutely nothing to do with this book. After retirement, he became involved with a number of organizations, which provided reasons to reflect on the moral issues confronting this nation. He acknowledges that there are many issues, which have improved the moral standards of the country, but in this book he focuses on the issues that are a threat to the long held moral standards on which this country was founded.
