I watched the Olympic Opening Ceremony yesterday. It was truly an amazing display of beauty and human synchronicity. But I found another aspect of it more interesting.
I thought it was interesting that in communist China where the government would like everyone to be atheist they had a show celebrating their religious roots. If Chicago gets the Olympics in 2016, what do you think the odds are that our Christian roots will be celebrated? About zero, I'd say.
Let's not forget two things. 1. America's roots are unapologetically Christian. 2. China is making great strides as a country, but that doesn't mean that we should assume they are "friendly" toward us.
