Those in Christian culture can often seem like ambulance chasers hovering around cultural shifts, ready to defend and preserve Christian "values" - or attack when necessary.

I can no longer cling to you. I can no longer choose you. It's time to let go. Because I look around and see that the darkness that surrounds me is entirely of your making. It's a void. Empty and lifeless. Paralyzing. Until now.

Jock Gilchrist

Perhaps the reason these attacks strike such fear and despair into our hearts is because they threaten to confirm our deeper fears: that we're not one, that we're not together, that we are alone in a harsh world. Let's not give that fear a chance to take root and grow.
