A new survey from Pew Research Center reveals that a majority of Americans believe that there’s been a decrease in the religious aspects of Christmas in public space, but, unlike President Donald J. Trump and Fox News, they’re not particularly mad about it.
During last week’s Values Voter Summit, I heard speakers like former Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and researcher/author George Barna lament the shrinking “biblical worldview” of the American electorate.
“We are dropping like a rock in America. America!” Bachmann said. “That’s something that should give us pause.”
Barna, an evangelical Christian who writes a lot about religion in America, said his research indicated only about 10 percent of voters hold a “biblical worldview,” and the percentage of millennials with that viewpoint is even smaller.
U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-Ala.) two-day confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee to be U.S. attorney general concluded today, but Sessions has already cemented our concerns about his lack of respect for religious freedom.
