Instead of a Christian revival, our nation is experiencing a Pagan revival. That, essentially, is the thesis of this article in The Washington Times, Losing our Religion: America becoming ‘pagan’ as Christianity cedes to culture (washingtontimes.com).
Here is how that article starts.
The Rev. Stephen M. Koeth, a Catholic priest and Ph.D. history candidate at Columbia University, was teaching a class one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s sermons that mentioned the road to Jericho. He found it striking that none of the students got the reference to the road, which is where the parable of the Good Samaritan takes place.
But then the Rev. Koeth realized it wasn’t just the road — the students weren’t familiar with the Good Samaritan.

Sad but informative information.
I explained a similar result in my post we are witnessing with a downward vortex twirl in Illinois population along with your “spot on” title word choice – Isolation.
Isolation from God began the change of direction that created the spiral downward to separate and isolate families, friends, and communities in our cities and States in the USA.
Isolation feeds bigotry, separation of common goals which include political and religious divisiveness in families, friends, and communities and regions in our Nation.
All the same effects every military general has been trained to recognize in battle.
Separate, isolate, and conquer.
Hopefully, SCOTUS in this new decade will reverse the core reasons which began the downward vortex in the USA.
The bigoted unconstitutional Blaine Amendments that served over time to make it unaffordable for the majority of families to be taught their religious values.
If SCOTUS reverses the State Blaine Amendments, it will serve to reverse the vortex direction upward again by allowing School choice, or School vouchers.
If not, only God knows the final outcome.
Hopefully it won’t turn out to be the same result what happened to Israel when King Solomon died 3000 years ago. And the same result has occurred and repeated in numerous Nations and Cultures as recorded in History.
Regards and goodwill blogging.
Good points and good things to pray for.
Left a good comment. It disappeared. Ugh
Checked the pending, spam, and traan buckets. Don’t see it.
O well WP ate it.
Btw, seems once a comment is posted with links/ all successive commentary is moderated. Seems dumb- but I think that’s the case.
