Dr James Dobson of Focus on the Family , one of the leaders of the anti Modern movement in USA and the World, the one who de-nounced Harry Potter as witchcraft ;=) who resigned a couple of years ago as chair of FoF, one of the bigger lobby groups over there, recently said to his staff in his farewell speech that the Culture Wars are lost and the USA is "awash in Evil" ;=)
So far, I haven’t seen many comments on this (there is this one in The Telegraph ) but a link on the first page of Huffington Post lea-ding to The Washington Monthly (Click on the headline!), but I find this piece of news most significant: the maker of late modern anti Modern Social Politics in Biblical drag concedes defeat after almost 40 years!
"We tried to defend the unborn child, the dignity of the family, but it was a holding action."
"We are awash in evil and the battle is still to be waged. We are right now in the most discouraging period of that long conflict. Humanly speaking, we can say we have lost all those battles..."
Intolerance and Hate have lost.
But, Dr Dobson hasn’t given up hope quite yet: “… but God is in control and we are not going to give up now, right? ... I have been assured by the board [of FoF] and by many of you that we're not going to cow, we're not going to be discouraged."
Yeah, God is in control. Dr Dobson better start listening to the Gospel!
7 countries in the World (6 in Europe and 1 in Africa) presently allow Gay Marriage, so does 4 States in the USA, some only from this month, with more coming up.
Indeed, Intolerance and Hate and the Re-subordination of women as Social Politics have lost its appeal.
Time for the ancient Paschal cry of generations:
Χριστός ανέστη! Christ has arisen!
