Marker Signs Along the Way adds this to the mix:

Here, “post-Christian” is a term that refers to the disappearance of personal and societal assumptions and world views that are rooted in the language of Christendom. The argument goes, that as the citizens of historically Christian countries (namely those in Europe and North America) become disillusioned with Christianity, Christian language and values begin to slip out of societal norms. Children grow up under parents who have spit out the bad taste that Christianity has left in their mouth, and these children have no concept of the biblical tradition and language that was once considered common cultural knowledge.
