Check out the superb op-ed by Charlotte Allen in today's LA Times, "Liberal Christianity is Paying for Its Sins," here. Concluding graf:
"So this is the liberal Christianity that was supposed to be the Christianity of the future: disarray, schism, rapidly falling numbers of adherents, a collapse of Christology and national meetings that rival those of the Modern Language Assn. for their potential for cheap laughs. And they keep telling the Catholic Church that it had better get with the liberal program - ordain women, bless gay unions and so forth - or die. Sure."
