Newsweek this month sparked a controversy with its report about "The End of Christian America."
Especially as it appeared in the run up to Easter.
The Wall Street Journal spoke of the 'End of Newsweek' citing declining audiences for its liberalism!
However, the (UK) Daily Telegraph says the religious right has conceded defeat, and the election of Obama has set America on a path of permissive secularism.
The Washington Post says amid a general shift to the left, religion is polarising between red and blue.
The Christian World Net Daily says America has never really been Christian but is in danger from moral decline.
Britain's Archbishop Cranmer blog notes the moral decline, but says it is not over for Christianity nor the Church.
Cranmer wonders how much the church is suffering because it became too political.
Some reports say the church may even be suffering from its association with George Bush.
Yes, Dubya gets blamed for this too!
As for Obama, while the muslim-raised boy president has dismissed Amercia has no longer a Christian country, Cranmer notes the word of God in its constitution, coins, etc.
President Obama is neither the Messiah nor the Antichrist: he is just another man to occupy another political office, and, like all Democrats, he seeks to make the United States more statist, Socialist and amoral.
The Christian response is not to curse God and die, but to repent, believe and trust; indeed, to rejoice in suffering, because suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
Hope that the Forces of Conservatism shall soon be on the ascendancy, and that government shall once again soon be concerned with whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, and whatever is admirable.
Indeed, 'hope' seems to be the watchword of 'The One' who maybe to blame for the current decline in religion in America. After all, there's only room for one Messiah at a time, isn't there!!
