Atheists love to quote statistics about Millennials leaving churches “in droves,” supposedly because Christianity is a horrible religion, and the Millennials aren’t going to take it any more.
“It’s an ancient, irrelevant superstition that will be totally extinct in just a few years!” they insist gleefully.
To hear them tell it, the young people are always right.
If a millennial doesn’t like going to church, it’s the church’s fault…
The christians need to adjust their beliefs or be less judgemental, or simply do a better job giving young people what they want.
“Young people are finally figuring out that what they’ve been taught by religious parents is a joke!” I’ve been told this…dozens of times.
So what does that say about the new polls that indicate young people are less and less tolerant of LGBT individuals?
Check this out: “Results of the LGBTQ survey are alarming!”
“Young people are growing less tolerant of LGBTQ individuals, a jarring turn for a generation traditionally considered embracing and open, a survey released Monday shows.
The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 – the only age group to show a decline…”
The article goes on to theorize that millennials have been brainwashed by a hateful culture because they are very “impressionable.”
But that’s not what I’ve heard about the amazing intuitive powers of American young people! I’ve heard they are simply good at recognizing bullsh*t, and they don’t feel the need to agree with you unless you’ve demonstrated a good reason for it!
I’ve heard millennials simply know what they want–and, they’re just waiting for you to ask, so they can help you do better.
Millennials don’t want to spend time hanging around Christians AND they don’t want to spend time with gay, trans, or queer folks… Interesting, huh?
Just for the record, there have been HUNDREDS of articles (like this one) written about how churches can win back the millennials, by being more loving and more sincere and less awful.
If anyone from the LGBT community wants to read those articles to get the Millennials to like them, I’d be happy to pass a few to you!
No need to thank me. But you’re welcome.
Together, both Christians and Gay/Trans People can learn how to win the approval of America’s youth.
