Jody Bottom has written a brilliant piece on the decline unto insignificance of the once brilliant, sustaining, American Mainline churches. While welcoming the effective end of non-left-wing anti-Catholicism, no Catholics—not even Gormogons doing dances on the graves of our traditional Masonic enemies—can consider this a positive development. Mainline Protestantism, in its several varieties, was among the core elements that produced America—as Bottom says, “a religious nation,” read: “Christian nation,” read: “Protestant nation.”
Mandatory reading. More important for Americans in the long run than Georgia, Russia, or Pakistan.
(I’ll leave Ghetto P to draw its connections to the plague of stripper/hooker-teachers of which he’s today’s Jacob Riisian scourge.)
UPDATE: Fr. Neuhaus’s observations here are not unrelated to the history Bottom documents.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
