Winning Elections, But Losing the Culture

David French observes that Christians’ increased political influence has been paired with a dramatic drop in cultural influence.  He writes that evangelicals “unprecedented influence on presidential outcomes even as our cultural foundation rots away beneath our feet. Not even the best presidential candidate will fix the family, nor will our most generous service project save a soul.”
