when it comes to them becoming overtly secularized. I mean it happened in Europe in the early 1900s, and now it is happening in America in the last 10-15 years. What are some of the similarities in attitudes, outward advocacy, and general conflict with Christianity. And, what are the differences in those areas. It happened so long ago in Europe that it doesn't appear to be as acrimonious, just a slow, creeping ahead away from Christianity. I wonder if gay rights, racial conflicts, etc are what is making it appear to be so sudden and spiteful in America. Maybe there weren't any societal issues going on when Europe mostly turned away. It was strictly a turning away without any in-your-face advocacy we are witnessing.
