CNSNews.com) Shaun Casey, the religious affairs adviser to presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008, said at a discussion on Tuesday about God and Politics that the demise of religious society in the United States is a good thing.
I, frankly, am glad American civil religion is dying, said Casey, who is an associate professor of Christian Ethics at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.
Casey made the remarks at an event focusing on religion and the 2012 presidential election at the liberal Center for American Progress where he was a panelist along with Gabriel Salguero, president of the National Hispanic Evangelical Coalition.

The jaw drops!
I am speechless!
What is “civil religion”???? That “religion” that doesn’t espouse “social justice” (socialism) and chaos?
Wesley is spinning in his grave.
In your dreams, “comrade”.

That’s the depth of Obama’s faith and of his “faith advisor” ack!
I swear, we (not us here, but the country as a whole) has elected a communist and enemy as President and he brought all of his fellow travellers with him.
Thats the depth of Obamas faith and of his faith advisor ack!
All that comes to mind is Jim Jones. (fellow traveler)
He was a good commie.
**religion is dying, **
No, it’s not. And for your information:
The gates of hell shall not prevail against her.”
I'll log in and post from beyond the grave to let you know if that theory held any water.
Romans 8:36: As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Romans 8:37: Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Romans 8:38: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Romans 8:39: Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God's Truth is deposited in His Word the Bible and His Son is called the WORD of God. Grace believer-saints of God will never fail to uphold His truth deposited in His Word and His Son the WORD of God.
It’s dying until the next tragedy brings everyone to their knees asking for God’s help.
But they will prevail against all those who think like this person.
they = it
Wesley Theological Seminary in Wash. D.C. has been drifting to the far-left for decades. Some of their leaders have shown up as sponsors of communist and mixed-leftist protests, as well as supporting pro-PLO fronts in the past.
Welcome to the wonderful world of subversion.
PS: American University and its religious center have had more “chaplains” than Larry King had wives, almost all of the hardcore communists (Tyson, Eldridge) to laughable clowns, Charlie Rothers, and everyone in between.
Wesley was a devout follower of Christ. Today his followers are not.
