Charisma Writer Claims That the Christian Left is Responsible for Declining Religiosity

Do you ever stop and think, “You know, if only modern Christianity was a little more vocal in the public square, a little more judgmental in general, and a little more obsessed with abortion and gay sex, then maybe I could buy into it… but they’re just too soft and fluffy nowadays for me”?

Me neither. But Christian writer and activist Chelsen Vicari, writing for Charisma, sees this as a significant problem leading to declining church membership.
