In my previous post, I define what I mean by the term, "Post-Christian." It is a difficult term to understand and define. It is fraught with connotation and misinterpretation, which may be further complicated by your geographical location. It certainly is for me living in the Bay Area.

Before I dive into this issue, however, allow me to first explain the impetus for this post.
