Sobering findings from the General Social Survey: the percentage of Americans who profess no religious beliefs is now slightly larger than either of the two main traditional religious groups in America.  “No religion” is now at 23.1%, with Catholics at 23% and Evangelicals at 21.6%.  While the atheists are still a small minority compared to all religious beliefs combined, their numbers have been growing ever since the Supreme Court outlawed prayer in schools, setting off an escalating war on religion.

It’s been fought in schools, pop culture, politics, social media and courts, until it's reached the current level of hostility where activists in league with politicians twist laws to try to persecute people for exercising their First Amendment religious freedom rights and brand traditional religious organizations as “hate groups” for refusing to embrace a “progressive” left agenda.

Sadly, as the linked story notes, this is a war that the anti-religious forces are winning among young people, and the results speak for themselves.  The increasing cynicism, narcissism, amorality and self-centeredness have been accompanied by a sharp rise in depression diagnoses (up 33% among Millennials and 67% among teenagers since 2013),  use of anti-depressant drugs (up 65% in 15 years until one in six Americans is now on them) and suicide (up 70% among teenagers since 2006.)   

 

Fortunately, at least for now, people of faith still outnumber the enemies of faith, and they do vote in greater numbers.  But they need to be even more motivated, because elections these days aren’t just to pick public servants.  One side has made it clear that they are a referendum on America’s soul and whether we are going to continue to be a land based on Judeo-Christian values and freedom of religion or a nation hostile to the very principles that made it great. 

 

This is why I'm involved with a terrific nonpartisan group called My Faith Votes, that “motivates, equips and mobilizes Christians in America to take action, transform our communities and influence our nation with biblical truth.”  You can learn more about it here:

I would like to see every single Christian in America show up for every election.  If we did that and made all our voices heard, people of faith could decide every election and lead this nation. 

 

And remember: you don’t just vote in voting booths.  You also vote with your dollars and consumer choices. You don’t have to support colleges that indoctrinate your kids into atheism and socialism, any more than you have to support products from Hollywood that mock and belittle your beliefs.  On that subject, “Unplanned,” the movie liberals in Hollywood, the news media and social media are trying hard to keep you from seeing because it tells the unvarnished truth about abortion and Planned Parenthood, is now on nearly 500 more screens.  You can find a showing near you here:

    Mike that is the reason all believers in Jesus Christ our Savior need to have continual prayers for the American People and for our President and Vice President and their families safety. There is I am afraid more evil coming our way for Satan is on a rampage against anyone who love God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. I also include you and your Daughter in my prayers for I know truth comes from you both to us.

    I had the experience of a Catholic School in the 60's I thought the teachings were a bit tough for a kid to live with at the time the teaching today has soften thanks God for that. Lets face it a Christian following makes for a more peaceful way of life we were taught the 10 commandments how can you find fault in that what are the negatives to that way of life? If the human race could live by those ideas would we have a need for Pelosi Schummer Nadler Schiff and I to say I regret most of the Dems I really do not see their positives. I believe God wants our time on earth to be easier than what the left proposes I believe we should work at inventing new ideas to make our live easier meaning using the Capitalism idea. The left proposal of free money leaves people idle; who can sit and do nothing all day or night no purpose to interact with people you are not going to get free money to live with extravagance. What ever religion you wish to call it the 10 commandments should be the law of the land not made by humans but One God before us I think that is HIS master plan.

    Sadly enough, Christians are voting for those that stand for killing babies and gay marriage and every ungodly thing you can imagine... our only hope is for Christ to return.

    This is a sad commentary on the future of our country. Being a baby boomer we always began the school day by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and saying a prayer.
    It is unfortunate that the only time prayers are said at a school is when there is a tragedy. Does the ACLU and other groups have a problem with this to?

    Here in Minneapolis the Lutheran Church which we attend is full every Sunday, so we have restricted Sermons to 7 minutes and have four services every Sunday to have enough automobile parking spaces.
