It has been said and it is being said - again and again in a self-congratulatory tone - that it is a good and effective strategy (here and now, in the Western cultures) to meet people half-way inside their secular-prejudices; and address their politically-correct Leftist blindness, nihilism, hedonism, active propagation of evil... with alternative information, arguments and perspectives.
The argument that New Right secularism is a kind of Entry Drug to Christianity.
(Christianity being indispensably what we really need.)
It Doesn't Work - and that is fact, not my opinion.
Rare individual exceptions aside (and these exceptions mean nothing when it comes to strategy - even when you personally are one of the exceptions) this does not work, and we know for sure that it does not work: therefore we should give it up.
We know it doesn't work because a generation of The Internet.
Alternative information, arguments and perspectives are by orders of magnitude more available now than ever before in the history of the world, and yet - look around!
If not, then what?
Uncompromising statements of the reality of things, truthfully, explicitly, as best we understand it.
Nothing less will suffice.
The power of Billy Graham, rest in peace.
