Amen and amen!
I've long said that while learning from and admitting the sins of our ancestors is good, and hopefully good for learning lessons, what the call for 'national repentance' is nowadays has nothing to do with penance or lessons. It's a ploy. For one group, it's a chance to obliterate everything that the Christian West built up in order to replace it with the New Way. For others, it's a chance at apathy and judgement, basically meaning 'our nation sucks and everyone is evil...except me and my hand selected group of awesome hipsters.' This quote by C.S. Lewis, over at American Catholic, nails it. Truly a quote suitable for framing.
