2. I think removing prayer from schools is fair to those who don't practice a religion. I admit I don't know a lot about the history of evangelicalism in the US, but their was the flavor of the movement strongly present even up through Bush's first term. As time goes on, I think more people will question that authority (removing prayer, removing "God" from the Pledge of Alleigance, etc)- to move the establishment to a more "equalized" (from my perspective) system, but I don't necessarily think this backlash will be enough to unhinge the Christian majority hold on the nation. Reduce the influence of evangelical preachers, yes.
Again, I am confused by this mixed message. Are you saying you agree with conservative Christians? Who are the "Christians"? Are "conservative Christians" also the "baby boomers" who frown upon MTV (who are the normal "Christians")?I could go on and on about this. But I think my main point here is, I'm not the one saying Christians have "lost the culture"'; conservative Christians themselves have been saying it for a few decades.
Or are you saying that "conservative Christians" (not evangelical Christians) think the country is going the wrong way on both ends (the evangelical and the MTV) and disapprove of the politics of the evangelical churches?
Who's disapproving of whom?
