Hope you're having a great time, anon.
Let's talk about something silly: myths. Myths have existed for as long as mankind, or, at least, as long we'd been aware of ourselves. Plato complains about unserious poets writing amoral myths, and that I think something you should keep in mind - that ancient Greeks, at least the educated Athenian elite (and, presumably, their non-Ionian counterparts as well) did not believe in all the stories about Gods and Heroes literally (which means they're substantially smarter than modern Protestants).
Well, have a look at this picture. I present you the modern myth - something every American and most 'kids' where the global Americanized culture reaches is familiar with. Of course, unless you're completely psychotic you know superheroes are fiction. But 'mythic reality' is in some sense more 'real' than sensual reality, and so you can see capeshit, Harry Potter etc employed in propaganda over and over again.
I haven't watched a TV in the last two decades, but it's painfully obvious that TV 'series', in addition to many other adverse effects, also plays the role of a myth in a sense that it conveys role models for the watchers to follow.
And that brings me to the final point: those myths are obviously pagan in nature. Sometimes, the more things change more they stay the same! What is the truly Christian myth? Resurrection, of course! (Calm your tits, cowboys - when I say resurrection is a myth, I do not imply it did not happen, but that it should be viewed from a mythic point of view, as a foundation of a whole belief and not as a mere historical factoid devoid of meaning).
But has there been an attempt to create a retelling of this sole Christian myth in an attempt to counteract pagan influence, or are mainstream churches too comped to stand up for what they profess to believe in? And if not - what kind of story would you, anon, tell, if you had a chance to inject a new myth into the broader internet Culture? I think Kek might had been the closest we've come to it (despite pagan appearance, the themes of resurrection and vengeance on the evil-doers through making all their deeds vain is quite Christian, even if doom-and-gloom associated with that 'cult' is not), but the "kewl" kids have long since moved on and it's dead in the water.
