The adoption of Christianity was
“the starting point for the formation and development of [our] statehood, the true spiritual birth of our ancestors, the determination of their identity… the flowering of national culture and education.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin.
But it could equally well be said for Europe, and for those nations, peoples, and cultures – including the United States – who descended, largely, from European forebears, and whose history and heritage is likewise European.
By denying our Christian past, and its spiritual, moral, and cultural patrimony, we are denying our own past, rejecting our ancestral heritage, denying our offspring (if any) their inheritance, and setting ourselves adrift on a sea of relativism.
A tree without roots withers and dies; a building without strong foundations crumples and falls. I believe we must return to our roots, return to our sources, rebuild our foundations. The alternative is both spiritual and cultural destruction.
