Liberals’ hate for religion is finally winning the battle for hearts and minds in America as for the first time ever, more people say they don’t have a religion than those that do.
For the first time since surveys on America’s religiosity have been conducted, more people say they reject religion.
“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,” Daily Wire reported.
“Mainline Protestant churches have suffered the greatest collapse, declining 62.5% since 1982 and now comprising just 10.8% of the U.S. population,” the report continued.
But the news isn’t good for our once religious country:
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.
In other words, once the comfort that there is a god that loves us looking out for us goes away, people begin to feel that their health, welfare, and happiness are tenuous.
When meaning is drained from life, people begin facing pressures that don’t as easily affect religious people. And it reaches into all areas of life.
Daily Wire adds:
Religious people are also significantly more likely to engage in happy-making behaviors, such as getting and staying married. A study released in 2017 affirmed what countless others had already shown: married couples report higher life satisfaction than their single, divorced, and widowed neighbors. That satisfaction tends to last beyond the honeymoon and well into old age.
Liberals fill this void of a lack of religion with their new religion of global warming where THEY become the “savior” in their own eyes. They also fill it with big government which makes the lives of everyone worse.
It is simply a fact that when humans begin to think that man is the highest authority, that is when evil reigns.
