This editorial from the Fort Worth Star Telegram on Christians' dwindling influence in modern society is sad and borders on the pathetic. The piece begins with this odd statement: "...devout Christian communities are bracing for what they anticipate will be the wholesale collapse of any Christian influence in the broader culture." I wasn't aware that the goal of Christianity was to influence broader culture. I thought Christianity was a faith-based set of principles for guiding one's own personal behavior. Instead, the editorialist seems to be playing a zero sum game: because other people don't agree with my religion's traditions, my religion is somehow diminished (i.e. someone is winning, therefore someone else must be losing). And who is to blame for generational thinning of the faith? Frankly my dear, it's not secular society's fault. Look no further than the manner in which you the faithful instill your beliefs in your own children.
