I sometimes wonder why Christians, in America, seem content with following. When it comes to matters of culture and art, for the most part, we're sheep.
Greg, at Areopagitica, has posted on the nonsense showing up at Conservapedia (the Wikipedia copycat), such as The Law of Mass Conversation or the historical fact that Germany's Afrika Korps was defeated in North Africa in 1973. He's also posted about the site GodTube (the YouTube copycat). I've also heard that there's a Christian version of American Idol.
Are we really that insecure? Do we really lack the confidence, in what we say we believe to be truth, to the point of having to look to the world for guidance? As Greg notes, "sometimes we are our own worst enemy."
I wonder, though, could it be we copy the world so... because we admire it?
