Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
although if he's worried that x-tianity seems to have gone missing in rational politics, then perhaps x-tianity should not have become so obviously and publicly corrupted by both plain old sexual depravity and partizan right wing political preference.

Christianity has always been a paragon of opposition to Rationality, also in its leftish varieties (along with Romanticism, Post-modernism). The Trump cult promises to win more bigly. But liberals themselves are more Romantic than Rational now, in their rejection of "deplorables", yearning for zero masculinity, expectation of Justice, belief in institutions.

People such as myself has said as much of the schema
(politics get the scare quotes, because its pretty clear that in western "civilization" that the demos are resigned to the belief, "politics" is out of their hands. A vanishing number will take no responsibility for representative democracy, the system of government in which are said to participate, and the agency of its effects: It's not me. They can't win. It's the Powers That Be. The Deep State. Too Big To Fail. 'Our' elites.)

Fingers to the wind.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
