This is a fairly good article about the deChristianization of the US. My Take: When Bedford Falls Becomes Pottersville – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs The author recalls how in the movie, Jimmy Stewarts character is fighting to keep the evil old cantankerous Mr. Potter from taking everything over. These words particularly got my attention: The evil bastards have won. America has become Pottersville, and it has mostly been due to Americas clergy being a bunch of spineless cowards who gave up their role as social leaders of our society so they could pursue making more money instead. How our clergy managed to turn into the confused, divided, bunch of losers that they are today is beyond me. I guess that is what happens when you sell your own soul for lucre.
