Martin Marty's Sightings post this week takes a look at six of seven points made about the current cultural situation in America by Christian ethicist David Gushee. The original post by David Gushee came out just prior to the 4th of July weekend (a fitting moment for the conversation). Marty takes a look at these hard truths, offers his thoughts, and invites us to consider our own. So, I'll do that -- take a read here and at David's original posting. So, how bad are things out there?
