Tel Aviv, Gay Rights and the Boy Scouts

This month's article starts with one of the fundamental and surprising to many contradictions in the modern Jewish state: that Tel Aviv is becoming the resort of choice for gays in the Mediterranean. When seen against the backdrop of the changes in society over the last sixty years since the years after the Second World War, so many bedrock principles have changed that the faith world horizon might not be recognisable to someone who lived in those days.

So what has caused all this social regression? A culture switch from a Biblically-based worldview and ethic to a secular worldview and ethic (or should I say "anti-ethic") has been a primary cause.

I am optimistic because those who are now the cultural elite will lead our Western nations to bankruptcy - both economically and morally, and this will prepare the way for a great revival.
