"Historically speaking, Christianity has a rather bad reputation for cold-hearted fault-finding in its assessment of media, culture, and trends. It's as if such religious faith has no greater calling than counting the bad words, spotting the sexual innuendo, and walking away in a loud, well-publicized huff. In contrast, apocalyptic xenophilia responds redemptively, which isn't to say that it brings redemption or that it does the redeeming. Instead, it sees and affirms the redemption already present and already underway. It is looking for it. Xenophilia is the way of affirmation."
