Progressives – The Root of Moral Distress

Moral Distress (MD) may have become America’s number one psychological disorder. So what is it, and who’s at the root of it?

Moral Distress occurs when you know the ethically correct action to take, but forces constrain you from taking it. For example, Moral Distress results from ethically or morally challenging situations where you have evidence our political elites are constantly making self-serving policy decisions and then lying to you about their motivation and where they’re going with these decisions.

Have you ever sat and watched the nightly news and intuitively and immediately known that a government policy the broadcaster is telling you about is inherently wrong. This policy will cause great harm, but you feel helpless to do anything about it. The policy will hurt you and your family, but there’s not a thing you can do other than calling your Senator and Congress person and hoping they’re not Radical Progressives.

For instance, your Moral Distress kicks in when you accidentally discover that your young, impressionable kindergartener’s school will teach her gender identity, sexual orientation, and tenets of critical race theory behind your back. 

You raise the issue with the principal, but the school is going ahead with the indoctrination anyway. You decide to protest this issue at your next school board meeting, but then you back off because you’re concerned the FBI might be taking the parents’ names showing up at school board meetings. And if you go and voice your concerns about the gender and sexual lessons, will the teachers take their displeasure on your kindergartener? And then you learn that your child’s class will host Drag Queens next week to lead reading lessons during story hour.

If these types of school lessons promoting Woke Ideologies continue, you face increasing Moral Distress. You also have the practical dilemma of either pulling your child out of that school and homeschooling or enrolling her in a parochial school. But you can’t afford either—Moral Distress results from helplessness.

By contrast, Wokeism is an insidious form of Moral Turpitude which is a form of deviant, wicked, immoral, and unethical behavior; Moral Turpitude is an unjust and evil departure from ordinary social standards such that it shocks a God-fearing community. Wokeism most certainly fits this description.

Joe Biden and Progressive Democrats bask in the Moral Turpitude of Wokeism. This senseless helplessness and victimization will continue if we don’t put a stop to it by voting them out of office this November 8, 2022.

A Devolving Society of Consequences

A Devolving Society of Consequences

Chasing Justice with Lt. Joe Pangaro – The cultural changes taking place in America are really evidence of a devolving society. Our customs and traditions, long under attack, are showing signs of weakening. Our national arguments about who we are and who we should be are creating fault lines that can split us…

Hey Christians! I’m Talking to You!

Nurses Out Loud with Jodi O’Malley MSN, RN – Three years ago this month, I had a great shaking while I was sitting at the nurse’s station in the ER when I learned that the whole world was getting on board with the lockdowns, and fear blanketed this earth overnight. I literally looked up to the heavens and said, “I’m supposed to pay attention to this part, right?”

Lazarus Resuscitated

Lazarus Resuscitated

FAITH IS… with Pastor Rick Stevens – For us, death is the end; it’s over. Lazarus died. But as Jesus explained, He is resurrection and life! Death is never the end. We can’t do anything about death. We can believe in the One who is life. Lazarus heard Jesus’ invitation to life and walked out of the tomb…

Hospital Whistleblower… “The Killing Floor”

Hospital Whistleblower… “The Killing Floor”

The Tom Renz Show – There are a lot of cases finally being filed on Remdesivir and other dangerous treatments. When these killing hospitals aren’t feeding and hydrating people, when nurses are admitting to practicing hastening death protocols, and calling specific floors in the hospital, “the killing floor,” I’d say these actions qualify as intentional…

The Upside of America’s Economic Turmoil

The National Security Hour with Dr. Michael Scheuer & Colonel Mike – Dr. Sabrin argues that America is now in a devil of an economic spot. However, the upside of the situation is that all of our economic problems – which have been made more disastrous by Biden throughout his career, but especially during his presidency – are man-made and…

Protecting Your Rights and the American Dream

Protecting Your Rights and the American Dream

The Constitution Study with Host Paul Engel – Others may throw in the towel, but will you stand? Just like at Lexington Green, when you see the oppressors coming over the hill, when they order you to simply lay down your weapons and disperse, will you comply? Or will you listen to the words of Captain John Parker, on that day in 1775…

Nobody Can Screw Things Up Like Government

Nobody Can Screw Things Up Like Government

The Constitution Study with Host Paul Engel – Some people treat government, especially the federal government, as an unmitigated good. Want to protect people from bad products, create a government agency. Want to avoid another bank collapse, let government regulate it. The one thing governments are very good at is screwing things up…
