A Worrying Poll of the Young

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 27, 2019

         THERE’S A TROUBLING NEW POLL OF YOUNG PEOPLE’S ATTITUDES TOWARDS TRADITIONAL VALUES THAT DOES NOT BODE WELL FOR AMERICA’S FUTURE.

         A WALL STREET JOURNAL/NBC NEWS POLL OF 1,000 YOUNGER ADULTS FINDS THEY RATE PATRIOTISM, RELIGION AND HAVING CHILDREN AS LESS IMPORTANT TO THEM THAN DID YOUNG PEOPLE JUST TWO DECADES AGO.

         HOW DID THIS HAPPEN SO QUICKLY? THERE ARE MANY REASONS, BUT ONE HAS TO BE CULTURE AND SCHOOLS. THE CULTURE, FROM SOCIAL MEDIA, TO TV AND MOVIES, DO NOT SUPPORT AND ARE IN FACT OPPOSED TO FAITH AND LOVE OF COUNTRY. ABORTION AND DIVORCE HAVE CHEAPENED THE VALUE OF LIFE AND DOWNGRADED THE VALUE OF MARRIAGE. LIBERAL UNIVERSITIES RE-ENFORCE THE ASSAULT ON THESE AND OTHER VALUES.

         THE GOSPEL HAS BEEN COMPROMISED IN MANY DENOMINATIONS WITH PREACHERS PREFERRING FRIENDSHIP WITH THE WORLD AND FOLLOWING THE LATEST SECULAR TRENDS TO THE APPROVAL OF GOD.

         THESE CYCLES HAVE HAPPENED BEFORE BUT THE STRUCTURES ARE IN PLACE TO REINFORCE THEM AS NEVER BEFORE. WHAT WE NEED AS A NATION AND AS INDIVIDUALS IS A REVIVAL AND THAT CAN ONLY COME FROM GOD. I’M CAL THOMAS.
