"For several generations, most Americans have embraced what could be described as the Goldilocks attitude toward religion: affirming faith choices that seemed not too soft but not too hard, not too hot but not too cool. Majorities viewed easy-going moderation and comforting compromise as the religious path that counted as 'just right.'"[HT to the Classical Presbyterian and Presbyweb]
-- Michael Medved
Michael Medved was raised a Conservative Jew, but has since become an Orthodox Jew. He has consistently written well-thought out columns. His theological point of view is quite different from my own, but his respect for the Scriptures is as reformed as any ardent Presbyterian's.
His perspective might not be expected to yield up the quick impression I had -- that "Laodicean" (Revelation 3:14-22) would have made a as good a metaphor to describe what he has observed.
