Wisdom from the most decorated Marine in history, Major General Chesty Puller.
During the Korean War, (then) Colonel Puller, on being informed that his Marine unit was completely surrounded by the Chinese army at the Chosin Reservoir, replied:
"We're surrounded. That simplifies our problem..."
Face it, fellow Christians and cultural conservatives. We're surrounded. We are on the HOV lane to paganism. We're now on the part with no speed limit. We are losing this culture war. Fast. We've been out-Gramsci'd.
This simplifies our problem. We can let go of spin, censoring ourselves, imitating our foes, straining to be politically correct. We of course should continue to fight in the political arena and in the cultural arena, but most important, we need to protect our families and friends and fellow Christians, and pray for our enemies, and we need to serve and love God.
We are surrounded by an increasingly pagan culture. But we've been here before.
It's how we started, actually.
