What's even more interesting, Neil, is how these two groups turned into Unitarians
Well that was over a century later! A lot can change in that time frame, e.g., Scofield Dispensationalism converting "conservative" American churches into a shrill Zionist lobby.

What should a "revival" look like anyway? Is there a checklist of things to look for?

Back when American schoolchildren were taught this with commendation, no one told me what the Mayflower people believed that was at variance with the English church. This letter from John Robinson clarifies a bit:

"Touching ye[the] Ecclesiasticall ministrie, &c. as in ye former, we agree in all things with the French reformed churches, according to their publick confession of faith; though some small differences be to be found in our practises, not at all in ye substance of the things, but only in some accidentall circumstances."

Certain people insist on pigeonholing people by "race," so yes, we have a problem there.

Now here is my open question: Why do American churches tend to be of one color? Is it merely racism, or a cultural divide?

Key quote: "...we do not claim to speak for any individual bishop or the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops"

Otherwise, they would endorse Democrats, whose Progressive/Socialist agenda has long been closer to RCC Social Teaching, aside from the baby killing.

But I can safely predict this: Trump will get no credit for it, unlike Carter with his Camp David Accords. "Orange Man Bad" can Do No Good.

Even Mussolini, the original Fascist, got credit for making Italian trains run on time. So did Herod the Great for Temple 2.0.

I have noticed downsizing in retail product packaging. What can this be but a way of disguising inflation to consumers who otherwise might balk at a higher price for the same quantity?

Products which can't be cheapened or shrunk easily are definitely more expensive than before, unless they're made in China.

Please excuse my condescending haughtiness here; I'm only trying to pass on anecdotal observations.

You attacked my character ("haughty", "condescending") just for making some observations. And whom did I insult? Since you didn't try to refute them, I'll assume it's because I posted something you don't want to hear.

Usually it's Progressives who use this dirty debating trick, but there are exceptions.

Doesn't sound like a complaint I would expect from someone using the honorific "Doctor."

Folk proverb: "Don't get angry with someone who knows more than you do. It isn't their fault."

IFBs are an American reaction to late Victorian Baptist Convention modernism. They have no historical continuity with the early Church, which is nothing to be ashamed of.

They were never a part of Romanism in the first place.
Only if you're talking about Waldensians or Lollards. No evidence of Anabaptists before the Reformation, except in Landmark mythology.

But it's true Fundies having nothing to "protest" since they, like most "evangelicals," agree with Rome on Free Will.

And anecdotally, I have found that many "evangelicals" have no problem with Catholicism either, so it costs conservative politicians little to pursue Catholic votes.

Even Libertarian hero Ron Paul, if I recall, spoke approvingly of the pope. Catholicism has been dominant in America for over a century; "Paleo" Protestants like me are considered cranks or worse; I have even heard Fundy Baptists disown the label "Protestant." And Reformed/Presby churches are well on their way to Rome too, as Trinity Foundation tells us.

Pre-Victorian churches would be shocked at how backslidden modern evangelicals are, both doctrinally and morally.

As the article says, the black community, thanks to genetic entropy, tends to have more of certain diseases, so I don't think it's unreasonable to have such a preference.

Plus there's this: "...she has been talked down to, misdiagnosed or dismissed by doctors." We can empathize: male doctors (white or otherwise) tend to assume women patients are hypochondriac flakes who report phony symptoms to get attention. So I don't blame my wife for preferring women doctors.

It's getting hard to count the number of Christian celebrities over the years, including those I have admired, who have "fallen" doctrinally or morally. It seems only a matter of time. Lesson: We should stop relying on these people and their works to motivate us; the Bible, with the Spirit, is sufficient.

Churches enable this pattern by pushing this or that shallow Sunday School book on their members (as the one I attend does now). Seems like a publishing racket.

.. There used to be a joke when I was young that if you don’t like something science says today, just wait and they will change it.
Especially when the "research" is funded by interested parties, be it the gov't, corporations, NGOs, or foundations. If Conflict of Interest is a good reason to discredit a witness in court, then it's an equally good reason to dismiss scientific claims outright.

Science had more integrity when it was a hobby of gentlemen, who of course were still capable of falling prey to bias and poor reasoning (e.g. Darwin's Descent with Modification, an inductive fallacy).

Looters can take comfort that long before Karl Mark, the RCC rationalized theft in Aquinas's "Summa Theologica," the definitive text for anti-capitalist Catholic Social Teaching:

"It is not theft, properly speaking, to take secretly and use another's property in a case of extreme need: because that which he takes for the support of his life becomes his own property by reason of that need."

The qualification "extreme" is conveniently vague. Naturally, leftists have all sorts of extreme needs, such as eliminating capitalists.

...How did it get this bad?
IMHO, the decline in fear of God and along with it, shame. Even my unbelieving parents (b. before WW2) were shocked when one of their longtime friends divorced because of adultery. Since that generation, the shame of divorce has evaporated.

I say "fear of God" to include those who, while they may not be believers, still have a general fear of eternal consequences.

The rise of the Welfare State, which financially enables irresponsibility. hasn't helped either.

Antecedent to this issue is staying married in the 1st place. This seems to be difficult for a lot of folks, including Christians, and has been for several generations going, if my anecdotal secondhand experience is any indication.

Rom. 13 teaches that obedience is due to secular authorities. I find no anarchist/libertarian qualification "only if their policies are sound." Because certain knowledge is impossible with empirical methods anyway (yes, "facts" are indeed fickle and changeable), the choice for me is easy and Biblical: I obey whether I think masks work or not, so as not to give offense.

Mask-wearing is not the "Hill to Die On" for Christians. Liberty of public worship is.

"provides the wearers with a false sense of security"

So might seatbelts and airbags, but I don't hear the "Risk Compensation" argument against mandates for these.
