British Prime Minister David Cameron cut his vacation short and had to return to England as his country was under attack. Rioters in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Nottingham, Liverpool and Leeds started attacking police, looting and burning businesses. Some say the spark that ignited the inferno was caused when the police shot a suspect.
However, the real cause runs much deeper.
America’s youth are not far behind England’s youth. Fewer and fewer of America’s youth are attending church. Many from evangelical homes walk away from the church once they leave home. Our public schools teach them that they are just another animal trying to survive in a dog-eat-dog world. They are told there are no absolute truths in the world and life is what you make it.
Violence among America’s youth is on the rise. Like the youth in England, they are becoming directionless and frustrated. After this past month, they have seen that their leaders in Washington are a joke. They can’t find jobs and with the economy going into the tanks, the situation has become ripe here for what has been happening in England.
