You Are Now Entering Post-Christian America

I have been following The Giglio Imbroglio. Whatever the truth is (did he withdraw or was he disinvited?), it reminded me of this quote from Carl Truman. I think he nails it:

You really do kid only yourselves if you think you can be an orthodox Christian and be at the same time cool enough and hip enough to cut it in the wider world. Frankly, in a couple of years it will not matter how much urban ink you sport, how much fair trade coffee you drink, how many craft brews you can name, how much urban gibberish you spout, how many art house movies you can find that redeemer figure in, and how much money you divert from gospel preaching to social justice: maintaining biblical sexual ethics will be the equivalent in our culture of being a white supremacist.
