Gallop just published it most recent poll of religion and American life. They discovered that almost 40% of Americans go to church. WHAT? Where?
I think this is absolutely brilliant by Keller (HT – Brian Newman).
He talks about the slippery slope of religion – here are his steps:
I knew I stood in the wrong line almost
immediately. There were several
Irish couples (fifty-ish) and in front of them a young Muslim family of five. The wife wore a "hijab" with full-face cover and I was wondering if
she was going to get through without disclosing who she was. I wasn’t the only one. As she went forward (with her family)
literally every one of the Irish folk careened their necks to see what would
happen. Well, after a lengthy
wait, with lots of hand motions and consternation, she turned discretely toward
the customs-officer and revealed her face.
