We can expect more of this…

The Church is now experiencing the fury of both militant atheism and militant gay activism. both groups see the church as the epitome of oppressive, backward, hate-filled bigotry. Calls to jail priests, ban religious service, censor religious speech as hate speech and so forth are now commonplace. Militant activists read this drivel and then act. We can expect attacks on our churches and persons to increase in the coming years.

At some point the church needs to decide how it is going to deal with these attacks. They will become physical as a new persecution in the West gets underway. While we are not yet experiencing the annihilation of whole communities that our brothers and sisters in the middle east are experiencing these first signs of persecution in the West are harbingers of things to come.

The left wing of the church cannot deal with the new persecution because they largely agree with the ideology of its perpetrators. the right wing of  the church cannot effectively deal with the new persecution because its analysis of modernity is bankrupt.

What is to be done?
