It’s always baffled me how politics can override medical common sense. For instance, giving a minor a Tylenol without parental permission can get a school nurse fired, but it’s okay to arrange an abortion for that same minor without even telling her parents.
That survey showing today’s teenagers are drifting away from religious beliefs and swallowing gender identity politics is no surprise, if you look at the way public schools are promoting those attitudes in the name of “tolerance,” and ironically, trying to censor and stamp out any opposing views, also in the name of “tolerance.”
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.
It’s taken as an article of faith among atheists that America, like much of Europe, is becoming more secular and gradually abandoning its religious faith. Well, just as it was 2000 years ago, reports of the death of Christ will have to be retracted.
This must be a very disheartening week for “progressives,” who assume that when Americans reject their attempts to “transform” society at the ballot box, they can always shop around for an unelected activist judge to force them onto everyone.
One of the best educational programs kids can be exposed to is the Eddie Eagle program that teaches firearms safety. It hammers home the idea that a gun is not a toy, and if you find one, you don’t touch it, you report it to an adult.
