If you attended the show March 27 and did not see the last couple of minutes because of the technical problems, here is Kirk Cameron's closing remarks for that segment.

Thanks Wilma for posting this video.  I am inclined to believe that the monument of faith and morality at Plymouth provides great hope to what we could be and what we might be capable of.  Yet I think it perhaps zero’s in on the keystone of this whole morality debate.  This monument to the Moral Plymouth Puritan/Pilgrims of 1620.

George Santayana said “If we do not learn from the mistakes of history, we are doomed to repeat them.”  What deeds have the Puritans of Plymouth done to earn the title of a moral people?

Plymouth actually has the massacre as part of their travel guide.  ((However, it was first officially observed in 1637 upon return of members of Plymouth Colony who had gone to participate in a massacre of the Pequots at Mystic.))

This provides us with a distinct and focused look at a systemic tragedy that we are doomed to repeat again in an ethnocentric society.  The dichotomy of our debate is what is moral and who determines what the line of morality is for the rest of us.  How does something like this happen?  The first step is to begin with speech declaring another culture to be sub-human, lost, or evil.  Second step is to declare some principle or moral justification.  I have observed the first step in this line of argument and will still be here to shine a light on these kinds of speech.

Conclusion:  Building a monument of triumph declaring that the people who slaughtered an entire culture as the paragons of morality are somewhat misguided.  The events of 1637 left an indelible impact on the people that have not been seen again until the impacts September 11th, 2001.
