As someone who realizes that America has been a Christian majority for a VERY long time, I saw this today posted by a Christian family member and was instantly set to agree with her.
I couldn’t agree more, which is why you see so many of the ‘good old things’ disappearing and no thanks to any help provided by Christian sects. In fact Christianity seems ‘designed’ to correctly use a term William Lane Craig misuses so often, to keep people down… to keep certain people in check… to allow certain others to thrive…
Like the way slavery went away, I mean, we fought a war over it. How does ‘thou shalt not kill’ get completely cherry picked around?
Like the way we watched women’s suffrage go…
Like the way we watched civil rights overtake race-frightened policies
We saw creationism lose in court over being a ‘legitimate’ science
We have seen marriage equality passed
We are seeing women’s reproductive rights take over…
The majorities accepted these falsehoods, lies, evils but ultimately in the test of daily life, and ever increasing acceptance of secular based morality they have been pushed from being acceptable practices. Religion is losing its revered status and assumed powers. People dont believe that ‘because god…’ is a good enough reason anymore. Today’s young adults need options, freedom, control, evidence, proof and rational discourse. The future is looking up. Thanks for the post Grandma!
