More from Thomas Woods
From The Church Confronts Modernity: about 100 years ago you had as a rival to Catholicism
... the social-political vision of Albion Small, which included the need to encourage the growth of allegiance to the new centralised state as the very font of democracy and to discourage excessive attachment to other sources of allegiance (by which were meant not merely local governments but also competing belief systems) ... very much in line with the Zeitgeist. Part of his aim consisted of merging the Christian denominations into a single, non-dogmatic system divorced from the supernatural.
All the essential issues are the same today.

From my com-boxes yesterday. Imagine there’s no heaven...

Mine eyes have seen the starter of a merger into mush...

But of course liberal religion isn’t the only kind that can be perverted this way. (But the example in LRC today is still Protestant. Draw your conclusion.)

Also, I’m sure images in worship are right out with this lot but literally venerating a cut-out of Mr Bush is OK. Again, as T.S. Eliot said:
If you will not have God (and he is a jealous God) you should pay your respects to Hitler or Stalin.
