[Responding to tweets saying that atheists are more familiar with the Bible than Christians]

It's a foreign concept to most people reading this post, but Christians were once willing and able to impose a cost--though more economic and social--for violating the moral traditions of the Church.

What happened? Christians in the West spent so long living among other Christians that our defenses atrophied--much like people who are never exposed to pathogens develop weak immune systems.

Now that the social and economic costs are being levied against Christians, lukewarm and nominal hangers-on are boiling off. Those who remain are like survivors of a plague--immune to the same attack. And the enemy has only one tactic.

The increasingly shrill--and yes, desperate--babbling from the Death Cult betrays their awareness of this dynamic. To their credit, they do have a base, animal sense of which way the wind is blowing which keeps them more in tune with the currents of social change than most Christians.

The tweets above, and the myriad others like it, don't arise from triumphal gloating over a cornered foe. They are the nervous mutterings of inmates who are locked here with us in the civilization we built.

You can impose your own costs on the Death Cult. Don't give money to people who hate you. Support Christian authors who want to entertain you. The first book in Glen Sprigg's Cameron Vail Mysteries is now only 99 cents. Buy it now!
