A Great Awakening to the Fight Is Upon Us
One of the people cheering
at the end was William Barr, who delivered his own call to arms last month in a speech at
Notre Dame. "I think we all recognize that over the past 50 years
religion has been under increasing attack," he said. Traditional believers have
felt the "force, fervor, and comprehensiveness of the assault" again and again.
Barr called it "organized destruction," a deliberate campaign to destroy the
religious foundations of American society.
What progressives have
rosily characterized as a noble movement for equality and freedom is no such
thing, Barr argued. It is a coordinated effort of academia, popular culture,
mass communication, and the entertainment industry to remove faith and the
faithful from the public square, forever.
