Doesn't anyone go to sunday school anymore?
Since we're in the holiest week of the Christian calendar, I figured I'd post something Easter-centric. The Times-Dispatch seemed to have the same thing on its mind.
The article references a poll of Americans stating that a majority no longer believes in the resurrection of the body after death. Public opinion polls on complex theological subjects are hardly reliable anymore. Despite near unanimity in their belief in God, most Americans have stopped going to church regularly and do not have the doctrinal understanding to express a coherent viewpoint on issues of which they've probably never had a serious discussion.
This is another indication that the anti-church movement, run under the guise as the separation of church and state, is winning the war for people's minds. Long ago, they got prayer out of schools and evolution in. Currently, they're after the pledge of allegiance, our national motto, and the Ten Commandments in public. In the future, when they go after personal expressions of faith in public (like what's happening in Europe), we will be the only ones to blame.
My other thought about the article was: Why are they including the Muslim viewpoint in an Easter/Passover article? Did I miss an upcoming Muslim holiday that coincides with Easter/Passover? If so, my apologies to my monotheistic brothers.
