The (Evangelical) Chickens Come Home to Roost

Sara over at the Orcinus blog has a fantastic post up about...
A study released last week by the Barna Group, a reputable Evangelical research and polling firm, [which] found that under-30s -- both Christian and non-Christian -- are strikingly more critical of Christianity than their peers were just a decade ago. According to the summary report, Barna pollster David Kinnaman found that the opinions of non-Christians, in particular, had slid like a rock in that time frame.

Dare I hope that it might actually be a sign that the 30-year long train wreck that has been the "Christian" Right is finally loosing steam ?

Go thou, and read. Me ? I'm going to go ask forgiveness for the sin of schadenfreude. And boy have I been wallowing in it since I read this! ;) (take that, all you Dobsons, Robertsons and Mohlers of the world)

Thanks for the link. I have the same hopes you do.

Me too. Time for a Christian fightback. (As in authentic Christianity that serves the needs of the people and not just a narrow interest group.)
