Speaking of our post-Christian society
Donald McClarey reminds us of how far America has come from our Christian roots. Note well, the proclamation was for our national sins. The old myth that it took the Baby Boomers to realize sex was fun, war was bad, and America wasn't better than God is just that: a myth. In fact, I'm not sure if there are other countries with as much national self awareness that have produced so many willing to continually critique and criticize their nation the way Americans do. But this proclamation reached into the very Christian notion of sin, the reality of sin, the consequences of sin, and the fact that mercy is always available, but our humble and contrite turning to God is not some option in the equation.
