The myth of the spiritless Europe
A great conservative myth is that Europe is godless. Many europeans have seen the weaker side of churches for centuries. They have lived the theocracy and found it wanting. However most still consider themselves faithful to God, if not to a church. Do you seek to live in the city of God or the city of the earth? As grand as St. Peters is, it has more in common with an outhouse than the throne of God. What we see as magnificent should not be confused with the true nature of God.
