Need more evidence?

I've said before that American culture no longer understands the Christian worldview nor is it familiar with what the Bible actually says (aside from a 6 day creation and passages about homosexuality). Need more evidence?

 

My question: why is this even news? Has it not been the position of Christianity for 2000 years that if you look upon a member of the opposite sex lustfully that you are committing adultery? The video almost quotes Jesus verbatim. Where is the news story here? Where is the controversy? It's the sermon on the mount for crying out loud! Christians, we have to wake up and realize that nobody knows what we believe any more. There are large parts of the country where people believe that Christians are just science-hating people who stick their morality into your bedroom. We have to reclaim the Christian meta narrative and show the world that Christianity is about the person and work of Jesus.

As a group they are one of the least religious segments of the population, but for some reason they think they can cover religious stories in an insightful or objective way. But no one is objective when it comes to the faith - we are either invested in its being truth or in its being a fairy tale...
