"none of it matters if cultural rot is still the result. " --> correct. And in my opinion that rot ties in to the cable of evil that we all have in our houses and to which those who are connected are all now increasingly slaves to (Catholic, Protestant, Moslem, Hindu, all now worship the glowing screen).
I take one case -- HOMOSEXUALITY and the serial "Friends". Don't get me wrong, I like the show, but I can see both in myself and in conservative friends (Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox) how it has subtly affected our stances by showing a gay couple as "ok", "normal". And this was not as extreme as Will&Grace, but you get my meaning on how this show "Friends" affected us. I believe that it also affected societies "sleeping around" and let's live together before marriage ideas, but I have no observations of that as that didn't affect my friends or me:)

Alex -- your statements that you see the Church as allies of conservative are not shown in the posts you post. A Catholic in chatanooga gets drunk and you find that and post it, a Catholic in Coimbatore kicks a stone and it hits a cow, and you find it and post it.
This persistent playing on small faults of individuals serves only secularists, athiests and Islamists. you may believe it helps the PCA/OPC but it does not
Furthermore, even if you compare the PCA/OPC combine versus Catholicism in numbers: PCA/OPC together = 300,000, Catholics IN THE USA alone, 60 million odd, that's about 200 times the number of PCA/OPC, so 200 times more likely for a few to make a mistake. Furthermore, the tight press control of the PCA/OPC is impossible in The Church of 1 billion. So your posts from a tiny org are hardly "balanced" in any way.
You may not like it, but the Catholic Church is viewed as the hall-mark of Christianity in the non-Christian world. When a non-Catholic pastor of 12 in the US threatens to burn the bible in the US, Catholic Churchs in Pakistan, India, Nigeria, Iraq are attacked. The PCA doesn't exist outside the US and the Catholic Church does -- spreading the gospel in Asia, Americas and Africa and now Europe again. And your statements that you want some kind of solidarity, I'm sorry, ring hollow
