Cardinal George makes sobering prediction
As the social landscape of the United States changes ever so rapidly, it seems toleration for historic Christian positions is lessening.
Cardinal George of the Roman Catholic Church recently made a sobering prediction. I think his forecast holds true for the whole of Christianity in the U.S., not just the Roman Church. First Things captured him sketching the implications of radical secularization for America:
“I will die in bed, my successor will die in prison, and his successor will die as a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the Church has done so often in human history.”
