Everywhere I look I see evangelical churches with full parking lots. Meanwhile, magazines like TIME and Newsweek that laugh at evangelicalism are going out of business. There is strong enough evangelical presence in mainline denominations to cause denominations like the ECUSA to implode when they go to liberal, strong enough evangelical and Mormon presence, along with Catholic, to halt Prop whatever it was in Cali, and some Brit chic things Christian faith is dying? What continent is she living on, anyway... Oh, wait, it's Europe. 'Nuff said.

I'm not sure if Harriet Baber is from England, but she lives and teaches in California: "Harriet Baber is a philosophy professor at the University of San Diego. She is the author of The Multicultural Mystique: The Liberal Case Against Diversity. Married, with three children, a dog and cat, she lives in Chula Vista, California, seven miles north of Tijuana."


My sloppy assumption since it was The Guardian. I guess she sees The Crystal Cathedral. I see evangelicalism as in chaos but hardly dying...

Actually, I'm from New Jersey, thought my husband is British. And I do have a great deal of interest in Catholicism and Orthodoxy. One of my problems with Evangelicalism is that bad money drives out good. Since Evangelicalism has now become the public face of religion in the US people don't see these other, more desirable religious alternatives.

Thanks for picking up my piece!
