“The world in general, and the West in particular, is undergoing a tragic process of de-Christianization. Christian principles, values and institutions have been extirpated from our social, economic, political, legal, educational structures. Sometimes publicly, sometimes stealthily, the process has wrought havoc in Europe and the countries that descended from them.”Those who believe that they "have no interest in promoting one brand of theism over another", who believe that by wiping out their nation's Christian heritage they gain more freedom for themselves, actually end up ruining their own freedom on the long run.
De Souza is the founder and director of Saint Gabriel Communications, an international Catholic apologetics organization and a popular program host on EWTN. He said that the failure of Christianity in Europe, has led to “the greatest Jihad ever carried out by Islam,” which takes the form not of physical battles, but as a “silent Jihad” through demographic take-over.
“Contraception promised a freedom without responsibility, abortion promises the right to do one’s own thing with one’s own body, homosexual marriage promises respect for different orientations … result: the end of civilization as we knew it.”

Here's a nice cartoon. (By the way, the girl depicted there might as well be Pentecostal :) But who said that the "progressives" are inconsistent? They're working towards their goal to "get the Bible out". Many of them either fail to realize (or prefer not to notice) that by banishing Christian thought from the public square (be that under the guise of "multiculturalism" or "separation of Church and State",) they actually make way for cultural jihad.
