Cal Thomas wisely reflects upon the failure of the Religious Right here.
The church is the secret government of the world, not by bullying or plotting but by being salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16). Our influence depends not on favorable historical trends but on our integrity before Christ. And unfavorable historical trends are an ideal setting for the display of Christ's glory, as he himself proved at his cross. No power on earth can withstand the weakness of the cross.
