@DesertRose posted these here and they got me asking if we're prepared to live under a theocracy. I know...its impossible, you say....but maybe its not and the West will, in the very near future turn into some sort of theocracy. I detect an undercurrent. All you have to do is take a look at some of the headlines from alternative media such as;
President Trump Triggers Liberals On Thanksgiving & Puts 'Almighty God' Back Into Thanksgiving Proclamation After Obama Removed All Mention Of God In 2016
Or, watching Pat Robertson, this time last year gleefully state how great it is to say 'merry christmas' again.
Like Hedges intimated, you just need the right crisis for this to happen.
Europe may be post-Christian but for how much longer? Immigration may have provoked the resurgence of the Right that, it seems, will make sure 'things return to normal'. For example:Poland to phase out Sunday shopping by 2020. Ofcourse the reason given is understandable, and people deserve days off work (more on Blue Laws) but what if more laws are pushed through to unite church and state.
I also think the recent developments regarding Jerusalem, at this point in time, might have a bearing on this. Trump just emboldened an evangelical faction, cementing his presidency as a God-send and war will more than likely be waged 'in the name of God'....for they're beating ploughshares into swords, pruning hooks into spears (Joel 3:10).
