    Survey: 72% of Millennials 'more spiritual than religious' - USATODAY.com

    Key findings in the phone survey, conducted in August and released today:

    •65% rarely or never pray with others, and 38% almost never pray by themselves either.

    •65% rarely or never attend worship services.

    •67% don't read the Bible or sacred texts.

    Many are unsure Jesus is the only path to heaven: Half say yes, half no.

    They seek the truth but don't know where to find it.

    Did they conduct this poll on cell phones, or land lines? Does anyone even have land lines anymore? :confused:

    See that's the problem. Socialism, in it's various forms, is what some of the young are accepting as their secular religion. It provides false faith, false hope, and false charity.

    Young folks feel "bullet proof". As you get older, especially much older, you begin to hope that God is as forgiving as he is billed to be.

    Really, is that what the kids are saying today? That's scary if true. Thank goodness my daughter has a good foundation in faith from me and my family, and is able to make her own choices of what she wants to believe.

    her own choices?

    or YOUR own choices?

    I was afraid my daughters would be affected by secular liberals so I home schooled them.

    Which gave the me opportunity, priviledge and power to REALLY BRAINWASH and INDOCTRINATE my daughters into believing what I TOLD them to believe...or else...

    now my daughters are able to make their own decisions! (as pre-approved by me)

    the thing is...
    i'm not sure if my daughters are more afarid of god....or me...?

    well
    as long as they are deathly afraid of SOMEONE so that they don't make any decisions that will piss me or god off....

    It is such a good feeling to know that through diligent brainwashing I was able to raise 2 daughters who "think for themselves"

    Man you're an idiot.

    Did you not read, "Make her own choices?"

    Do you really think teens are that stupid, that they can't think for themselves? You have no idea what my daughter believes or doesn't believe, so quit making generalizations of what YOU think people are like who believe in God.


    You're just like those freaky right wing nuts that calls everyone 'Libtards' :cuckoo:
