We have never been a culture in which everyone believed, of course. But this is the first time in our history when, at least among the population as a whole, Christianity and its influence on our culture was not only controversial, but divisive.
Back in the '60's, the Kerner Commission found that we were dividing into two, racially distinct societies, "separate and unequal." It appears that the same thing is happening now when it comes not only to religion, but to those aspects of our culture which have long been generally accepted, and have been influenced by religion.
"Who'da thunk it," as Harry Caray would say?
