The Barna Group just released a new study of Generation Z (current teenagers) that found they are the least-Christian generation in US history. Nearly twice as many claim to be atheists as Millennials (13% to 7%), and 35% of current teens say they are either atheist, agnostic or unaffiliated with any religion. Just 59% say they are Catholic or Christian (a six-point drop from the Millennial generation), and only 4% hold what is considered a true Biblical worldview.

The survey places the cause of this change on today’s teenagers having been brought up in a post-Christian, post-modern environment where they’ve never been exposed to Christianity or church. I would have guessed from looking at the results that their parents allowed pop culture to replace traditional Christian values as the #1 influence in their kids’ lives, and it’s showing up in other harmful ways as well.

Neil Diamond

By Mike Huckabee

Sad news from the music world: Neil Diamond announced that he is retiring from touring after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. He intends to keep on writing and recording. I’m sure he has many, many fans among my readers who will join me in saying a prayer for his health and that he will continue to be able to share his prodigious talents with the world for many years to come.

Rosie the Riveter RIP

By Mike Huckabee

A final salute to a Huck’s Heroine who finally got the long-overdue recognition she deserved. Tulsa-born Naomi Parker Fraley has died at 96 in Longview, Washington. You know her as “Rosie the Riveter,” the World War II-era female factory worker who became a symbol of both the homefront war effort, and later on, of the women’s rights movement in general.

At 20, the former waitress became one of the first women employed at the machine shop of the Alameda, California, Naval Air Station shortly after the Pearl Harbor attack. She was working on a turret lathe in her coveralls and red-and-white polka dot bandana when a photographer snapped her picture. That photo made the newspapers and inspired artist J. Howard Miller’s iconic “We Can Do It” poster. But Fraley’s name was never attached to the poster.

In the 1980s, another woman was mistakenly identified as the worker in the original photo that inspired “Rosie the Riveter.” It wasn’t until 2015 that a researcher finally tracked down Fraley and corrected the error. He said it was sad and unfair that she had been robbed of her rightful place in history for so long, but there was nothing she could do because when you’re 95, nobody will listen to your story. It’s especially ironic considering people were using an image inspired by her to protest women not getting the credit they deserved.

Fortunately, Naomi Parker Fraley lived long enough to see the record corrected and get the credit due her, both for the photo and her service to America. And her inspiring image is sure to go on living after her for many years to come.

A reminder to NFL officials

By Mike Huckabee

A reminder to NFL officials who rejected a veterans’ group’s Super Bowl program ad on proper respect for the flag and anthem: it shouldn’t bother the players in that game because not a single team that included a regular Anthem-kneeler even made it into the playoffs.

Newsweek should be called MAD

By Mike Huckabee

These days, turning to Newsweek magazine for news is like looking for solid information on mental illness in MAD magazine. The latest example: they seem to seriously think that if they can get rid of President Trump, Hillary can still be installed in the White House.

Kevin Sorbo not invited?

By Mike Huckabee

Today’s Lesson For Liberals: Before you virtue-signal to your friends how tolerant you are by loudly banning a famous conservative from attending your allegedly non-partisan public event, maybe check to see if said conservative was ever planning to attend in the first place. Because otherwise, you just look like a pathetic loser trying to piggyback on the fame of the person you’re badmouthing and you open yourself up to ridicule.

Like this guy!
