Today I got a longer comment to my Christian ethics—to be or not to be? post, from Dean McConnell, who's got his own blog where he among other things "champion a Christian theory of jurisprudence in the marketplace of ideas".
I ended my answer to him by writing:
If Christianity is going to be saved it's only the Americans who can do it. Only the Americans have the imperative to redefine Christianity into something that is strong enough to meet the future. But America is today deeply stuck in liberalism. With it's imperial position it's even the main source and guarantor of a world order of liberalism, multiculturalism and political correctness.I should add that President Bush is definitely among those suicidal liberal Christians, mentioned by Dean McConnell.
Let's see if the very sound revolt against Bush from conservatives about the immigration bill is the turning point. Everything has to start somewhere. But there's is a very very long way to go. And I'm afraid America has fallen in love too much with it's Wilsonian role.
Why could only the Americans save the future of Christianity? To get a more thorough explanation for that, we'll need to look at how the history of Christianity evolved. This is a post I had already planned to write. It will come in the future.
