William Stringfellow quote

I was sorting through some old files [on paper... that's how old they were], and came across this quote:
"As I find it, religion in America is characteristically atheistic or agnostic. Religion has virtually nothing to do with God and has little to do with the practical lives of men in society. Religion seems, mainly, to have to do with religion. The churches – particularly of Protestantism – in the United States are, to a great extent, preoccupied with religion rather than with the Gospel..."
William Stringfellow
And then today, actually it's tomorrow's post because of the time difference, I read Paul Fromont on the Prodigal Kiwi(s) blog: The Advocacy by Bill Wylie-Kellermann for William Stringfellow and His Writing and he uses the same quote.
