|As much as I loath to say it, I disagree. Time and time again, whenever Christian society’s become less religious, they become more statist. This journalist makes the fatal mistake of assuming that when most people give up their religion, they somehow become more rational. As bad as it is to kneel before some made up god, it’s much worse when people trade that in to kneel before a very real and very powerful state.|
This ain’t the Middle Ages, it’s the governments that won’t leave you be, not the churches. I can deal with the church bells, turning into something like France I can’t.
