“The Summer of Love” is the name given by the Associated Press to the gathering in 1967 of 50,000 youth in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco. The Press describes the event as “Youths looking for drugs and sex flooded into San Francisco.” LSD advocate, Timothy Leary, was there to deliver his famous mantra, “Turn on. Tune in. Drop out.”
It is to the shame of San Francisco and the media to remember such an orgy by referring to it and celebrating it as “A Summer of Love.” LSD fried the brains of many of America’s youth and left them as little more than vegetables. The so called “free love” has spread disease, broken hearts, led to suicides, to the tragedy of abortion, the destruction of marriage, and the poverty of single motherhood.
The 50th anniversary should be a day of weeping and repentance that this rebellion against God’s morality should happen in America. Come to Peace Lutheran Church. Sunday service time is 9:00 a.m.
