The Long Retreat in the Culture War
The Long Retreat in the Culture War

<span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The Republican rout in the Battle of Indianapolis provides us with a snapshot of the correlation of forces in the culture wars.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Faced with a corporate-secularist firestorm, Gov.

And the white flag went up again.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Politics follows culture.

Fair enough. Americans do not believe in compelling people to do as they disbelieve.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Then followed the demand that no child be exposed to prayers or religious books, including the Bible, nor have any day or week set aside as a holiday if connected to Christianity.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><a href="http://buchanan.org/blog/the-long-retreat-in-the-culture-war-15868?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=Feed%3A+PatrickBuchanan+%28Pat+Buchanan+Update%29"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Read the entire article</span></a>
