The Bishop is Wrong: The Church Has Already Lost the Culture Wars

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’.

    I agree that at this point the Church has lost the cutlure wars. The church no longer holds the moral high ground because of the activities of bad apples.

    Folk accuse me of being defeatist; i think I’m being realistic and we have to find a way forward from this point.
