There is a certain type of Christian leader who recognizes that Western civilization and American culture have produced a government and society particularly conducive to human flourishing, yet out of guilt for the past failures of this culture ...
(including failures of the white American church), he wants to see this culture taken down a notch. He wraps his appeals in the language of humility, but is actually seeking to abdicate the responsibility of cultural and political influence. ...
He wishes this knowing full well that any successor regime would likely be worse—not only for us but for the very groups he's claiming we must make amends to—because such a successor would abandon much of what has made our government and society so appealing. ...
But out of guilt (and failure to appreciate grace), he lacks the will to defend our culture and its virtues—which have provided such blessings to those born here and to generations of immigrants—and would instead surrender this great treasure with which we've been entrusted. ...
He wants to atone for the sins of our ancestors and the imperfections of our present regime by handing our cultural and political inheritance to those he recognizes would destroy it, rather than stewarding this responsibility and working to glorify God by expanding its blessings.
