This is to expand a little on no-church Christians. I said yesterday much of the church still focuses on judgment while much of society wants to leave judging others behind.
Europe now polls minority Christian. Some of Europe is welcoming refugees from the Middle East. The U. S. polls majority Christian. It is welcoming fewer from the Middle East.
The question raised by some is whether the moral values of most Europeans is now determined by views of humanism more than by the old spiritual and judgmental values. This humanism manifests itself as being tolerant of the diverse kinds of humans and beliefs.
This issue of humans rights spills over into all religions. It is argued other religions have larger civil rights problems than Christianity. This may be true, but wherever civil rights come up short in Christianity it is a problem that need to be corrected for its own good.
One of the interesting things about civil rights is that its meaning does not differ a great deal from one society to the next. It is not universal, of course, but it does not differ as much as doctrines among the great religions of the world.
To me, this gives hope that an more or less universal concept for advocating human rights will emerge. Because it will have a more uniform ideology, it will displace a large swath of religious doctrine world wide.
While this has not happened yet, I believe the seeds have been planted.
