So the Bishop may be dismayed (who isn’t?) but it’s too late. The church lost the ‘prayer in public schools’ battle, the ‘abortion on demand’ battle, and now the ‘gay marriage’ battle.
And do you know why? Because loads of Christians have beliefs that stop far short of implementation in behavior, in praxis. Why? Because practical atheism is more a problem than theoretical atheism or angry atheism.
To put it bluntly, the church lost the culture wars because the church is inhabited by too few Christians and too many ‘christians’.
