I write not to praise nor denigrate the view expressed in 'God is Not Gone'. I want to address a glaring omission that very much pertains to the subject, a growing distaste from God and a thirst for violence and salaciousness.
The omission is the growing trend of violent acts at places of worship in this country. This violence ranges from shooting of members of a place of worship to vandalism of a place of worship. The common thread in recent acts of violence toward places of worship is that they are predominately where a religion that is practiced is not considered Christian, traditional nor American in origin.
There is more concern over the entertainment habits of people and not the fact that people are acted upon violently for how they worship. So are you concerned that people bring God back into their lives or are you advocating a practice to bring Him back into our lives?
God is not personal property. How one brings God into their lives doesn't matter, what matters is that they do bring God into their lives.
