We have some real noise out there on a CNN blog along with some thoughtful comments.
We, the church of Jesus Christ, also have some problems with the young culture growing up in the West, including the USA, really fast. We are not reaching out to the millennials and we are not reaching the millennials. Rachel Evans wrote this blog for CNN describing her view of the state of the church vs. the millennials’ thinking and needs. She also used data from this survey. Rachel had mostly sound things to say because she was basing her comments on this survey, though she did add her own views. I did take issue with this thought:
…young evangelicals often feel they have to choose between their intellectual integrity and their faith, between science and Christianity, between compassion and holiness.
You see I don’t believe any of those pairings are incongruent. You, young, old and millennial can keep intellectual integrity and your faith. There is no disparity between the two. Thousands if not millions of Jesus followers are intellectual and cherish their faith. More

That’s what we are here in the good old, new USA nation of laws. That is, laws which ensnare law-abiding citizens.

For some, caring for the planet conjures up left-wing “tree-huggers.” But one Idaho church asks — how can you be pro-life and not be pro-creation?

because he committed the cardinal sin in an age of political correctness: Thou must not speak ill of anything gays, lesbians, bisexuals or transgenders wish to do.
In an interview with the Baptist Press and later on a Christian radio program, Cathy, whose father, the philanthropist Truett Cathy, founded the company, defended marriage between a man and a woman and when asked about the company’s support of traditional marriage said, “Guilty as charged. We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.” Cathy believes American society is rotting (and where is evidence to the contrary?) because the country has turned away from God.

He did not say anything hateful about them. He simply expressed a deeply held conviction rooted in his Christian faith. More
