In this missive Kansas City's top faith blogger offers a perspective on a better work regarding America's new religions.
Here's how Mr. Tammeus sees the partisan new faith debate:
"Religion for many people in America now consists of belonging to the solipsistic church of Trump, while, on the other side of the ledger, religion for many others has to do with a worship of social justice and an adherence to the idea that human progress is possible, perhaps to the point of perfectibility -- an idea that got blasted away a century ago at the end of the incredibly brutal World War I. Part of the rise of these inchoate faiths is due, he asserts, to the decline of Christianity in the U.S."
At the risk of offering further reading that's just a bit more highbrow than our typical fare, this is a great local analysis of an even better essay. Take a look:
