It worked....and then it did'nt!
The faithful dig in so deep that sometimes it looks like their heads are in the sand. But their defenses are weak and their original ideas were not well grounded.
I don't think this is just a youth versus age issue. We sang along with the 5th Demension in 68, "This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius" but it was really just an antiwar angst along with a sexual revolution of sorts.
This is deeper, and wider, and more comprehensive and seems to affect everything and every type of perception. I know the freedom of speech and thought plus the internet voice plays a big role.
I did some reading on two blogs about people who have been scarred by controlling religious fundamentalists. Decades ago the victims suffered silently, and now they leave loudly and share with many eager ears what abusive religion can do to the spirit. This is good, as is so much of this shift, and I am shifting too, and its good.
