Skip to comments.The Religious Right Is Right to Be Scared: Christianity Is Dying in America (Barf alert)

Among the Christian Right, and most Republican presidential candidates, it’s now an article of faith that the United States is persecuting Christians and Christian-owned businesses—that religion itself is under attack.
Why has this bizarre myth that Christianity is under assault in the most religious developed country on Earth been so successful? Because, in a way, it’s true. American Christianity is in decline—not because of a “war on faith” but because of a host of demographic and social trends. The gays and liberals are just scapegoats.

Meanwhile, the âwar on religionâ narrative appears to be gaining ground. According to data from the Public Religion Research Institute, 61 percent of white evangelicals believe that religious liberty is being threatened today. (Only 37 percent of non-white Christians believe this, suggesting that whatâs really happening is an erosion of white Christian hegemony; the âbrowning of Americaâ goes hand in hand with the de-Christianizing of America.) They believe they have lost the culture war, and even that LGBT people should now pity them.
It is actually you we pity Jay. You are lost, and on your way to Hell itself unless you repent and turn to the Savior.
In other words, âreligious libertyâ is not merely a tactic: it is a sincerely held belief among the religious right, which, not coincidentally, feeds into the belief that we are living in the End Timesâsomething an astonishing 77 percent of American evangelicals believe.
Yes Jay, we believe in the Word of God and His prophecy.
We shouldnât think of Kim Davis and her ilk as motivated by hate. Actually, they are motivated by fear, which is based in reality but expressed in fantasy.
"Ilk?" Nice. Motivated by fear? Well, yes, when our lawless government and courts haul innocent Christians in jail simply because they are loyal to God, people have a rational fear of fascist like you. History is piled up with the bodies of those murdered because of you and your "ilk."
Thereâs not really a villain pulling the strings of social change, but like the God concept itself, mythic thinking creates a personification of evil who is fighting the war on religious liberty, the war on Christmas, the war on Christianity. These malevolent evildoers are like a contemporary Satan: a fictive embodiment of all of the chaotic, complex forces that threaten the stability of religious order.
So much irony here. Jay refuses to see or acknowledge that Satan is the evil force that has entrapped him and those who will not come to the Lord, yet he sees the saved as the evil ones.
"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter."
You time is short Jay. Very short. Evil will intensify, and the world will get worse. Judgment is coming. Your sin and lust has blinded you to the Truth.
Christ is coming for His own.
I pray you wake up before it is too late.
The left never can keep their lies straight (not a pun). This all smacks of the typical Soviet “anti-religious propaganda” that they made sure to enshrine in both USSR constitutions: Article 124 in the Stalin constitution of 1936 (which Alger Hiss copied to create the UN Charter) and Article 52 in the Brezhnev constitution of 1977.
The good news is that Christanity is growing in the southern part of the world so it will send missionaries.
The left is getting more vile and more spiteful in their attacks on religion. Read between the lines in this article and you know the author is mocking us and gleeful that his lifestyle can’t be judged in present day secular America. Everything the left touches they destroy. The minute they started to take the reference of God out of every public place, school, etc. they started and are continuing the decline of the moral and social fabric of America.
Yes, I get all my Christian information from a LGBT activist...
These leftist secularists will be the first to have their heads cut-off by the Muslims they respect so much.
So how will the writer feel about those mean old Christians when the Muslims take over? Muslims are not very tolerant of homosexuals.
That’s part and parcel of Marxist dogma: abolition of the family, abolition of private property, abolition of religion, abolition of the right to keep and bear arms; IOW, tear down all of the pillars of “bourgeois” society to replace it with socialist society. Problem is, you’re left without a society.
Christianity is growing?
It is being deleted from our culture far as I can see...starting with the schools and the parents who won’t take their kids to Sunday school. I have been very worried about this.
There IS a war on religion and the zealous writer of this is evidence of it.
Atheist supremacists suck as bad as Islamists.
It’s true. Christianity IS dying in America, especially among the young. It was wiped out in Europe, and I witnessed a lot of it. To get young Christians back, we have to get Christianity out of politics for one. Christian leadership would do best to not insert themselves in fights to alienate. It’s not pleasant to hear this, but watering down your churches to make them seem cool and liberal will never work, and fighting tooth and nail against what others who aren’t Christian do won’t either. Instead, do all of your teaching inside your churches. Let secular laws like gay marriage go; talk about the true problems the laws cause when inside your churches. Don’t let the libs get you polarized and make you the enemy. You scare your own next generation away. Love the sinner? Show it.
I saw in 20 years young Europeans just dump their religion like trash. We don’t want that here. Keep Christianity strong but don’t push it on the world; just shine your light and attract people with its purity.
God is sifting the cold and the lukewarm from the steadfast.
This is, I believe, His plan.
Southern part of the world is where the Christian faith is growing.
Silly faggot playing the useful idiot for a bunch of thuggish Marxists.

...And so began my period as an unwitting witness to history. I stayed with Kate and her lovable Japanese husband, Fumio, in a dilapidated loft on The Bowery as she finished her first book, a PhD thesis for Columbia University, “Sexual Politics.”
It was 1969. Kate invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a “consciousness-raising-group,” a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China. We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:
“Why are we here today?” she asked.
“To make revolution,” they answered.
“What kind of revolution?” she replied.
“The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted.
“And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
“By destroying the American family!” they answered.
“How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
“By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
“And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.
“By taking away his power!”
“How do we do that?”
“By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
“How can we destroy monogamy?”
Their answer left me dumbstruck, breathless, disbelieving my ears. Was I on planet earth? Who were these people?
“By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!” they resounded.
They proceeded with a long discussion on how to advance these goals by establishing The National Organization of Women. It was clear they desired nothing less than the utter deconstruction of Western society. The upshot was that the only way to do this was “to invade every American institution. Every one must be permeated with ‘The Revolution’”: The media, the educational system, universities, high schools, K-12, school boards, etc.; then, the judiciary, the legislatures, the executive branches and even the library system.
You mean Latin America?
To survive I think we Christians need to quit turning the other cheek and stop being chartible to people who really want to behead us. We are about to find ourselves in a fight or convert to Islam (hell) situation.
Rather, the countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The Christian faith is growing bigtime.
Also remember that Americans are armed to the teeth bigtime as gun and ammo sales have shown.
which reminds me....I need to buy a gun. Just not sure what.
Islam is growing in South America. Christianity is growing in the Mid East and Far East. American is caught up in the Great Falling Away and the Church Age is almost at an end. Maranatha.
I doubt 10% of Americans are Christians. If you poll and ask for belief in things clearly taught in the Bible, you won’t get numbers like 70-80% “Christian”...
It’s under attack from within.
