Texas Faith: When society’s morals shift
Rudolph Bush | Published at Dallas Morning News June 9, 2015 8:00 am
The writer Rod Dreher recently opined that America is no longer a true home for Christian people and that “we have got to prepare ourselves and our families and our churches through intentional living, through disciplined living, and through an awareness of the cultural moment to deal with perhaps even persecution.” He suggests that our nation is on a confused path of the sort that drove St. Benedict away from Rome and into the woods during the empire’s decline. Conservatives, he suggests, should “consider what I’ve come to call the ‘Benedict Option’ —that is, pioneering forms of dropping out of a barbaric mainstream culture that has grown hostile to our fundamental values.”
