Truth and Secularity

Just a brief response to Stuart’s article on truth and secularity.  You suggest that the movement toward secularization that has been underway for about 150 years continues unabated and is taken up by postmodern descendants. 
I am not sure that is true – Modernity under the influence of Enlightenment thinking has indeed assumed that religion would eventually die.  But many who have held to the “secularization thesis” now recognize that it was false.  While the postmoderns are now recegnizing and in some ways encouraging “the return of religion”.  It would seem the current climate is more hospitable to Christian belief than we have seen for a long time.  The publications of folk like Dawkins is I think a sign of how desparate those who oppose religion have become – seeing its powerful return.
