Today the Millennials, write the Pew analysts, are “relatively unattached to organized politics and religion,” and significantly more unattached than the age cohorts (Generation Xers, Baby Boomers, Silent Generation) that came before...After decades of the popular culture embracing subjective, personal morality and schools marinating their students in racialist nonsense, it's no wonder that the mistrust of institutions has spread more widely. When you're taught to question authority, it's natural that eventually people will question the ones telling them to question authority. It's hard to snipe at institutions. Destroying trust in organizations is done more with strategic bombing than high-powered rifles with scopes.
Most Millennials say they believe in God, but it’s a smaller majority than among older age groups, and only 36 percent say they see themselves as “a religious person,” versus nearly 60 percent of their elders. Some 29 percent of Millennials are religiously unaffiliated. They’re evidently moving away from their parents’ religion but not moving toward one of their own.
One reason may be that people tend to join churches when they marry and have children — and Millennials, so far, aren’t doing much of either. Only 26 percent of Millennials age 18 to 32 are married, far lower than other generations were at their age (Xers 36 percent, Boomers 48 percent, Silents 65 percent).
Millennials aren’t entirely rejecting parenthood, but 47 percent of births to Millennial women are outside of marriage. Even so, about 60 percent of Millennials, like their elders, say that having more children raised by a single parent is bad for society.
While packs of fatherless children ransack businesses, we focus on gays. The CEO of Mozilla was forced to resign because he refused to agree that sexual morality is personal. Meanwhile, 47% of the babies born to Millenials yesterday had no fathers committed to them. Today, 47% of those babies will suffer similarly. Tomorrow, another 47% will come into the world handicapped in the same way. But all we can talk about are the gays and how the traditional family isn't that valuable after all.
Well, that's not entirely true. We talk about gays only when we're not talking about race.
At my daughter's public high school, her history teacher preaches racialism morning, noon and night. Almost every time we've asked for extra credit assignments, they've been suggestions to watch racialist movies like 12 Years a Slave, The Butler, Cesar Chavez and so on. In order to gain some extra credit points, my daughter had to go to the MLK Day Parade here in San Diego. The textbook is no better. The chapter on WW II is a wonder to see.
The first 8 photographs in the chapter are of minorities and women. The chapter deals exclusively with WW II, not the lead-up to it nor the aftermath. It's straight-up wartime history twisted into racialism. The white guy with the biggest photo in the chapter is ... President Clinton apologizing to a Japanese internment victim. Eisenhower's photo is 1/6 the size.
My daughter's English class isn't much different. Every novel they're reading this year is racialist. There's one about blacks being oppressed, one about women, one about Hispanics and one about American Indians.
As far as the students can tell, the American past is filled mostly with evil. While the intent of the progressives in the education industry is to indoctrinate the kids in critical race theory, their tools are not nearly as focused as they think. Instead of racialism, the kids learn to mistrust their ancestors. The progressives being ancestors as well, they end up caught in their own nets.
None of our kids learned the critical race theory lesson. Instead, they all mistrust racialists and the teachers as well. The ones who have taken the mandatory racialist diversity classes in college mistrust them even more. Sitting in classrooms for weeks on end listening to Julius Streicher's proteges screaming at them about oppression and seeing lots of evidence to the contrary all around them, they've learned to mistrust everyone and everything.
So it's been do your own thing, what's right for me may not be right for you and all of America to date has been fueled by race and sex and gender oppression.
Were you expecting a generation of church-going flag wavers to come out of this?
