Democrats are winning. And it’s bad news for Christianity in America.
The new largest “religion” in the United States is atheism.
It’s a sad day for the country.
From Daily Wire:
For the first time in history, atheists constitute the largest religious group in America. According to the General Social Survey, the number of Americans who have no religion has increased 266% over the past three decades and now account for 23.1% of the population, just barely edging out Catholics and Evangelicals as the nation’s dominant faith. Mainline Protestant churches have suffered the greatest collapse, declining 62.5% since 1982 and now comprising just 10.8% of the U.S. population.
As religiosity has declined, social ills have abounded. Nearly one in five American adults suffers from anxiety disorders, which now constitute the most common mental illness in the country. One in six Americans takes antidepressant drugs, a 65% surge over just 15 years. The problem is particularly acute among younger Americans. While depression diagnoses have increased 33% since 2013, that number is up 47% among Millennials and 63% among teenagers. Coincidentally, suicide rates among American teenagers have increased by 70% since 2006. American life expectancy declined again last year, as Americans continue to drug and kill themselves at record rates.
Don’t kid yourself. Dems have pushed for a secular nation for decades.
Conservatives are still fighting hard, but it appears the battle may be lost – at least for now.
Religion News has more about religion being on the decline, especially among Millennials…
Fewer than half of Americans consider religion to be an “extremely” or “very” important part of their identity, according to a new study.
The American Family Survey, an annual national survey conducted by the Deseret News and the Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy at Brigham Young University, found that just 43% of Americans viewed religion as a core component of their identity in 2018.
Below are six key findings about religion in the national study, which featured 3,000 respondents and had a margin of error of ±1.9%.
The number of Americans who identify as atheist, agnostic, or nothing in particular—often lumped together under the umbrella term of “nones”—is now 35%. That’s actually not a huge increase over last year, though, when the figure was 34%.
“Though the change from year to year is small, there is a clear upward trend,” said Chris Karpowitz, professor of political science at BYU and co-director of the Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy.
Catholics dipped down two percentage points, from 21% in 2017 to 19% this year.
How can Christianity make a comeback when the left calls for its banishment?
Hollywood serves as the entertainment branch of the Democrat Party and they are doing everything possible to ensure religion in America dies.
Is this the end of the line? Might Jesus soon be on his way back?
