To me, one of the problems is that most Christians are not aware of the ideology that informs the attacks on Christian values: Postmodernism/neo-Marxism. Postmodernists reject absolute truth; all is interpretation, thus feelings rather than facts rule. They reject logic; Jacques Derrida accused Western Civilization as being phallogocentric: the Patriarchy wielding power by using logic. They oppose the Logos, the Word. They oppose dialogue. See university campuses in the West and the “hecklers veto” of conservative speakers. And they oppose the individual; the group is what’s important. The groups are nested in Marxism, with the oppressed and the oppressors; what we call “identity politics”. There is a great amount of material on Postmodernism on Youtube, especially from University of Toronto Psychology Professor Jordan Peterson. Just do a search on “Jordan Peterson postmodern” and you’ll get a lot of hits. Here’s a recent Peterson talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4c-jOdPTN8 An ideology which is anti-Logos is perfectly described in 1 John 4:1-6. Christians who oppose Nashville have clearly not recognized the virulently anti-Christ spirit of Marxism which informs the opposition to Biblically eternal truths.
