People keep asking, what is going on in America today? Why is it so different than anything we can remember before this? And, I've taken to screaming this in their ears:

Everything you think you know about Satanism is Wrong.
Liberal Christians seem so benign. They hold many of the same political points of view as I do. To one degree or another they also support a secular society.
