The era of post-Christian secular pelagianism

On display:

Yep.  When a paid Catholic apologist mocks the idea that the core of our problems is our relationship to God (in part by accepting ludicrous partisan bilge that ignores facts and human suffering around the world when not convenient), then it's time to consider plumbing for a career.

But then, in fairness, how is he different than most voices in the Faith today - Catholic, Protestant or Orthodox?  How many would stick to this claim, preferring more scientific, cultural, sociological, psychological, political, or other material causes and effects and (of course) solutions?  You can't blame one apologist when he merely echoes the overwhelming majority of voices that pine for the world's horses and chariots to fix our problems.

Bonus: Is there something particularly wrong about referring to traditional orthodox Christian understandings of the world's problems and our relationship to God as 'mystical mumbo jumbo'?

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.  
Psalm 20.7
