    Religion declining in Ireland? Even there? Religion, in whatever form, creates an "other-ness" about those who don't follow it. Without it, the views of people are more liberal (usually) and everyone is supposedly the same. I wonder if our ancestors ever saw this as a possibility.

    People make religion out of politics and politics out of religion. This interplay ensures there's unlikely to be an end to either. I'm frankly tired of the prisms within people go back and forth unendingly over issues, with some predetermined cookie cutter approach where neither learns anything and they just confirm their own worst nightmare is the other--back and forth. Zero humility and accountability.

    I think the most damage that's been done to Christianity in particular (I can't speak for other religions) has been by profaning it and distorting it. People who grew up with Christianity, and who studied it seriously and faithfully for its own merits in early adulthood, as seminarians traditionally did, had a far better chance of getting it right than those who were counter-culturalists or were just spiritually lost at that point in their lives. The latter are people who thought Marx actually had good ideas, and who became the social justice warrior type. They couldn't really study the word of God from a standpoint of faith, because they had become inculcated with the idea that our traditional values were lacking. They thought they could make up their own morality out of their own personal feelings. When people do this, they are not serving God, they are making believe they ARE God. These people likely imagine Jesus as some hippie fried on weed or something. Who really knows what they believe? They have not inherited or internalized the culture, so they have no place trying to pass it on, and yet they presume to do so.

    Then there is the sort of preacher the Jewish-atheist media likes to present in its subtle propaganda. This is either a sleazebag who is hungry for money, or someone who loves his own voice, or the tactless old man who tells children they will be damned for this or damned for that.

    It's no wonder people are uninspired by this. It's no wonder they think poorly of religion. They have no idea what it really is, because all they see is heresy and negative propaganda. I know a woman who very shallowly prefers Pope Francis to Pope Benedict... just because of the way the two men look. People are not raised to be wise anymore.
