Quote I: “America’s problem isn’t too much religion, or too little of it, It’s bad religion: the slow-motion collapse of traditional Christianity and the rise of a variety of pseudo-Christianities in its wake.” from Ross Douthat’s “Bad Religion”
Quote II: “Camille Paglia, an atheist art historian who nevertheless has a high appreciation for the beauty engendered by Christianity, has taught students who can’t quite place Adam and Eve and haven’t the foggiest who that Moses fellow was. ‘If you are an artist and you don’t recognize the name of Moses,’ Paglia told Emily Esfahani Smith, ‘then the West is dead. It’s over. It has committed suicide.’” From, “White Trash Religion in a Nutshell: Proud, Ignorant, and Messy”
