Why are we fighting this war?

In a blog posting today, Southern Seminary’s Al Mohler notes a disunity in the European Union over the ethics of biomedical technologies and speculates that the EU is divided by a “culture war.”

He asserts that the fundamental divide in Europe, like the rift in the U.S., is at least partially defined by the presence or absence of Christian conviction and that “what one believes about God determines what one believes about everything else – including human dignity, the sanctity of human life, and the ethics of biomedical technologies.”

What do you think? To what extent does the absence of Christian conviction drive the “Culture War” in the U.S.? Do you see other factors affecting which side of the argument a person takes?
