This was such an interesting election to say the least. Now that there has been time for me and you to collect our whits, I am left with a couple of thoughts that I think are important for the church to come to terms with. And with the church, I mean the suburban white church that I am a part of.
Here is my take away: After all the exit polls and post mortem of the election, I see the election as a choice between two cultures: The Judeo-Christian White Man vs. Those who have been wronged by that culture combined with those who feel bad for those who have been wronged. And for the first time, ever, the Judeo-Christian suburban culture has been rejected by the majority of Americans.
Before you react, think about it for a second. Think about who you voted for and what values you were choosing. Think about all the demographic information we have learned since the election. Think about who you want to cast your lot with? For the first time ever the majority cast their lot against the Judeo-Christian, suburban, middle class, married, white man. And if not him specifically, the culture he represents.
