City on a Hill

On this day in 1630, John Winthrop began compiling a journal that would be contain a history of New England. Winthrop was a Puritan who saw Europe slipping away from pure Christianity. He joined the Massachusetts Bay Company to establish a "City Upon a Hill" in the New World; a beacon of light to a world of darkness.

What would Winthrop think about the New World today? Today's churches are surely less pure than the Church of England was in the 1600's.

Where would Winthrop go today to establish a City without the impurities of America's atheistic, hedonistic culture?
