The Editors’ Quote of the Day:
“Christian Americans should see themselves as under a sort of occupation. Forces largely from outside your communities suppress that natural drive, confirmed by grace, for public religion. The ruling class is hostile to your Christian town, to your Christian people and to your Christian heritage. The occupation universalizes their ideology, forcing your Christianity to exist only in the walls of churches, denying any civil and social ordering to God and to Christ…

It isn't a unique story, but what sets this anime apart is that its background art was generated using AI rather than drawn by humans. According to images…
