White Christians of the USA have lost cultural war


"Cultural war" is lost, white Christians die out, the number of parishioners steadily falls. Modern realities of the USA, once the most religious country of the Western world are that. It is no wonder that the practicing Protestants and Catholics prepare for transition to catacomb situation. To replace their belief there is already in many respects similar, but quite terrible ideology of new American life. In 1976 eight of ten Americans called themselves "white Christians". Even ten years ago "white Christians" made more than a half of the population of the country. Today their only 43%. This biggest religious minority, but it after all minority. The speech goes not only about religious decline now. Americans of average years notice how the literary and esthetic canon of their country quickly disappears as traditional behavioural norms are washed away as fall into oblivion household trifles – an integral part of a cultural code of the nation. It became difficult to exchange with colleagues quotes from school classics, all it is written by "dead white men" and isn't obligatory to studying in multicultural community. Today the educated U.S. citizen can't so just wish to the seller in a supermarket or to the passerby on the street any more: Merry Christmas!" And suddenly this hackneyed phrase will offend somebody? Most quicker "iudeo-Christian values" the youth leaves. The Christian choice is replaced by either atheism, or Islam – this religion most promptly acquires neophytes. However, the dekhristianization meanwhile hasn't concerned establishment. Authorities in America are filled by the practicing Christians, and each candidate for president is obliged to testify the strong faith in God before the nation. As a part of the Supreme Court for all history of his existence there was no atheist. There are still no atheists in the senate, and in the Congress – only one, the representative of the State of Arizona Kirsten Cinema. Also she is the first open bisexual elected in the Congress and soon expects to become senator, "having a little diluted" their ranks from Protestants and Catholics. At the same time these adherents of Christianity in power paradoxically impose to the American people the laws which are obviously not keeping within traditional Christian representations. With their support sexual minorities literally terrorize it legal claims of the businessmen refusing to serve gay marriages. It from their consent rises хайп around transgender people and sex scandals with participation of ecclesiastics are fabricated. Including therefore ordinary American Christians – from fundamentalists from the rural province to the educated intellectuals in big cities – recognize that their "cultural wars" are hopelessly lost. Against scrap there is no reception, even the most famous and influential religious preachers who are bringing together the whole stadiums have no slightest chance to overcome that promotion which nurture the population of mass media and Hollywood. Yes, conservative evangelic Protestants look quite resolutely in the fight with modern
