There's a passage in Ross Douthat's NYT column today that struck me as analogous to the decline of environmentalism. So I made the appropriate word substitutions:
Thanks in part to this bunker mentality, American Christianityenvironmentalism has become what Hunter calls a "weak culture" "” one that mobilizes but doesn't convert, alienates rather than seduces, and looks backward toward a lost past instead of forward to a vibrant future. In spite of their numerical strength and reserves of social capital, he argues, the Christian churchesenvironmental organizations are mainly influential only in the "peripheral areas" of our common life. In the commanding heights of culture, Christianityenvironmentalism punches way below its weight.
