Revival Time: Up From Impeachment

William Murchison, The American Spectator

We read constantly these days about the “nones” — adherents to no religion save in some vapid “spiritual” sense. With the decline of religious conviction goes certainty, goes any sense of authentic place in community, goes community adherence. What comes with it? Well — an increase in pointless squabbles for one thing; bad-tempered attacks on the differently minded or motivated; furious efforts at disassociation from the unconvinced; repudiation, often enough, of community and family. Anything else come with it? Impeachments? Political warfare as a way of life? I wouldn’t be startled to hear just that. Nor, I fancy, should anyone else.
