Most modern societies have had to cast off the shackles of impedimental political and religious ideologies. Russia had to abandon Stalinism, Leninism, and even its own national identity as a socialist republic. China is quickly morphing into something far beyond anything Mao’s Red Book ever dictated. Germany’s disastrous embrace of a genocidal religious dogma led to outside intervention, ruin and devastation — as did Japan’s Empire of the Sun. With the Arab Spring we see the Middle East coming face to face with an oppressive 5th Century Weltanschauung. Alas, it is the United States with the increasingly aggressive tactics of Christian revisionism, pseudo historicizing, and dogmatic adventurism where we will face our most dangerous crisis to date. The question is will we see it in time to act, or will we be lulled into a complacent acceptance of these abuses under the misguided pretense of “religious tolerance” and “constitutional protections “?
