So often the contemporary church is a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound. So often it is an arch defender of the status quo. Far from being disturbed by the presence of the church, the power structure of the average community is consoled by the church's silent and often even vocal sanction of things as they are.Has anything really changed?
Update: Barack Obama, polled to win big in New Hampshire, was instead narrowly defeated by Hillary Clinton. New Hapshire, incidentally, is the last state in the country to recognize Martin Luther King Day as a holiday.
