Spreading the Good News
The message of modern Christendom is one of endless cession and accommodation to her illiberal enemies. Islam, by contrast, gives its followers certitude and tells them to bide their time. Secularized Christianity is now the Establishment, which is why the desert creed of Islam evangelizes.
When Muslims need their own space away from abominations such as gay marriage and feminism they take it, secure in their patronage networks, their patriarchal culture, and their unflinching sense of truth. Modern Christianity can only exhort her adherents to pray and do the best they can with such resources as the individual or nuclear family can muster, and even commands them to seek illumination from the anti-Christian view.
The age of Christian evangelism is over, with the modern Christian gospel of utter altruism and voluntary displacement being adopted by the secular State. The garment-rending of modern Christian evangelicals is pure theater at this point. The other day, I watched a commercial with a Christian missionary at least thirty pounds overweight stomping around, demanding I send his employer money as the camera panned on a doe-eyed Haitian girl in a ragged dress. At that point, I was screaming at the TV, "Build them a f***ing sewage treatment plant!" I'm going to start doing this in real life.
Time for the Church to feed Her sheep.
