Remaining Enlightened in an Age of Endarkenment

We are living at the beginning of a new age of Endarkenment, although our religion, in particular, is founded upon Enlightenment principles of the 17th century, stemming from the Renaissance period, rooted in Antiquity. Endarkenment requires shutting out the light, which means our religion, like other once Liberal institutions, is threatened because its principles are considered threatening. Ours can no longer be a religion of ease and convenience. It is a religion that takes courage if it is to truly remain our religion.
