The Posse was interested to see this post at Austin Bay's blog on how the center of gravity for the Anglican Church is closer to Nigeria than Canterbury.
Over at the Belmont Club, there is additional commentary on how far the Church of England has fallen into folly.
The Posse has noted before how the "mainline" Protestant churchs are becoming ever more agnostic in their believes and ever more hedonistic in their practices. If the commenters at the Belmont Club are correct, and ordained Anglican ministers are now leading Druidic ceremonies, one could argue that the circle is now complete: it will be the Third World that civilizes the First World.
This is the great hope for Christianity. It is ironic that the Christian faith could survive every challenge: persecution, slavery, disease, war and famine but prosperity would be the one tihng that would shake its very foundations.
Happily, not all in the West have embraced the short-term pleasures of moral relativism and wholesale repudiation of scripture. The Faithful that remain will, in the end, have the last laugh as the childless hipsters pass fearfully into the darkness beyond.
