The De-Christianization of America is Complete

  1. If people think that the acceptance of homosexuality is an indicator of De-Christianization, I will not object to it; but in my view, it is a minor theme. There is a far more important criterion, which Stephen Colbert explained better than I can possibly ever do:

    “If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.”

    I think there are only three or four lines in the whole Bible that deal with homosexuality. The main themes are monotheism, the cult in Jerusalem (or the New Jerusalem), God’s care for His people, and after those religious themes, there is one message that returns from Amos through Isaiah to the Gospels: greed is a sin, profit is dangerous for the soul.

    A capitalist society can never be a Christian society; those two are fundamentally at odds. The same applies to my own country, where Calvinism first corrupted to Capitalism. Unlike care for the poor and underprivileged, which is an important theme in the teachings of Judaism and Christianity, homosexuality should not be used to measure the De-Christianization of a civilization.
