The paean of the modern America, that we can't legislate morality, that we shouldn't and that we certainly don't wish to. The reality is different though, the truth is, we have built our entire modern political system predicated on the notion that it is the imperative of liberty to pursue equality, because somehow egalitarianism translates into justice and freedom for all within the boundaries of our republic. But it is that very mandate to pursue equality that is leading us down a path of religious and ideological disenfranchisement.
The society that is America today has lost it's sense of irreducible unity amidst an avalanche of affirmation, irrational empowerment and moral incertitude. We look in the mirror but all we can see is the shattered glass reflecting back the broken image of our collective identity. And so we're plunged into a crisis that draws no clear lines of demarcation. The old maxim, that innovation is not progress, should haunt us.
And Christianity is a religion of exclusivity and distinction, it posits one way of salvation and elucidates the culpability that man innately feels based upon his own conscience; it distinguishes between the right and the wrong act and thought and refuses to validate the unrighteousness and rebellion of fallen mankind. Thus, Christianity is no friend to the elimination of things that differ that postmodernism demands, it will not capitulate to the demands that it stay behind the curtain and relinquish its claim of soteriological and eschatological dominance to a people who think that they can become God, to know right from wrong as authentic and original knowers.
