The Gods That Failed

Rod Dreher has a great post in response to global villiage idiot Bill Maher.  I think that the point is certainly valid that our society in general has moved other things into the position that was previously held by a god figure, regardless of which one you want to choose.  I personally find it beyond argument that our culture has made consumption it’s deity in the last few decades, and it certainly seems that society is inheriting the whirlwind as a result right now.

It seems to me a sad world that would be created by Maher if he was given the task of fashioning a new one.  His world would be entirely devoid of everything transcendant and meaningful.  I thank God that to live means more than the simple fulfillment of biological necesities and impulses.
