1) The role of "church" generates both more skeptics and stronger apologists.
2) Americans wrestle with a culture of violence.
3) Trust in the public school system is failing.

As many have discovered, “Hope” and “Change” for the good does not come from government or politicians. The only change that will make a difference will be a change in the hearts of the American People who run the show in America. Like Adam, the American People have handed their power over to the diabolical devises of government and put their trust in politicians. But God in his great mercy may very well save our country once again by causing a sweeping spiritual change and awakening across our land, causing the American People to rise up, put their trust in the Lord, not man, and take back their country. May it be so, Lord.

Thanks for posting this.

The first stat seems accurate. As much as atheists like to crow about their gains among American youth, many are just becoming liberal spiritualists (my mother is one of these deluded souls). I would have liked some delineation between mainline and conservative churches.

Secondly, our culture is saturated by violence. Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie trial balloon involves a homosexual murdering Christians in the south. Is it any wonder Christians see this as more of a concern since around the world, they are the target of most violence, and now that is being played out on the T.V. screens of America?
As for bullying’s increase in prominence, either this is nanny-statism proclaiming more and more benign actions as bullying, or more likely, anti-bullying programs have actually increased bullying... as many conservatives predicted.

Thirdly, this is great news. We are fighting a war against communist radicals in the USA and one of their greatest weapons has been public education, brought in by avowed Marxist, John Dewey. Public school is not some age-old western tradition. It’s fundamentally anti-western and was developed on the heels on nihilistic philosophy and the statist dreams that followed. Adolf Hitler was a public school pioneer.
It’s good to see schools discredited, whether by their substandard education rates, exposure of left wing teachers, or union actions like protecting a child molester in Wisconsin.
The end of public schooling in this country will see a revival of America and the beginning of the end for the communist plot to destroy us.
I declare a goal, that we have less than 8/10 parents sending kids to public school by 2018, and on from there. Denounce it whenever you can.

I think we will see an exponential growth of home groups not affiliated with any organized religion. Those home groups will also be those who primarily home school.

research found adults name bullying at school (36%) as their top concern on issues of violence today.

If that is actually true this country is SOOOOOO SCROOOOOOOD!
