Archbishop Charles Chaput off his Meds (and Reservation?) Again – Trashes 99% of Everyday Christians as “Pagans” – Welcome to the “New Evangelization”

who ha who ha nana nana na - Do the Philly Shake

In practice, American society now breeds a kind of radical self-focus and practical atheism – not
by refuting faith in God, but by rendering God irrelevant to people’s needs and urgencies of the
moment. (Just the way Jesus used to do it ???) …

Here’s what that means for all of us as believers. A “new” evangelization must start with the
sober knowledge that much of the once-Christian developed world, and even many self described
Christians, are in fact pagan.
