What does the writer mean by affiliation? I know Christians who are no longer members of a church because of that church's position on homosexuality.
I did not read the entire CBS report, but it is possible to not be a member of a denomination and still believe in the Lord, Bible etc.
I would like to know how many have left “the church” but not Christ?
I do see a generation ripe for conversion to Islam, probably one of the more insidious threats buried in this report.
The endless battering of any mention of Western religions in public schools, the mocking of Christmas and Christianity, the open contempt for any sort of conversation about morality and values, and the outright denial of observations of any kind, except for Islamic rituals, is fast setting the pace.
Public school officials seem paralyzed when it comes to setting the same limits on Islam, or even witchcraft, that they routinely place on Judeo-Christian traditions. It is OK to set aside prayer rooms and declare school holidays for Islamic students, but the non-Islamic have no such amenities granted to them.
Where there is a vacuum, something shall rush in to fill it.
