Will Millennials Be the Change to Our Nation’s High Divorce Rates?

Published

on

Millennials are a controversial generation.

Today’s twenty- and thirty-somethings seem to both vex older generations for their lack of work ethic, over-dependence on technology, and apparent inability to pick up the reigns of our economy.

On the other hand, there’s also a lot of evidence to indicate that millennials are the driving force behind some important social changes in our nation after decades of influence by the wild children of the Baby Boomer generation.

Millennials tend to oppose abortion more than their parents, something that seems rather contrary to the current rhetoric of our day.

Millennials are more likely to be politically conservative than their parents, perhaps because the only way to rebel from parents who were themselves rebels in their day is to reform.

Now, the BBC reports, new research is showing that while millennials are less likely to marry than their parents, those who do are significantly less likely to get divorced than their parents.

Between 2008 and 2016 the divorce rate in the US fell by 18%, according to a report from the University of Maryland.

The author put it down partly to people born between 1980 and the mid-1990s getting divorced at a lower rate than their baby boomer parents.

“Marriage has become more selective, and more stable, even as attitudes toward divorce are becoming more permissive,” the report suggested.

Millennials are three times less likely to marry than their grandparents, but those who do tie the knot appear to be staying together.

This is an interesting trend in a generation that was raised amid high divorce rates and an increasingly jaded view of marriage.

I would offer that perhaps many millennials tend to no longer view marriage as anything very significant, choosing instead long-term, semi-committed relationships with squishy definitions and an easy out.

While on the other hand, other millennials observe what they believe to be a negative impact the lack of regard for the sanctity of marriage has had on our culture and endeavor to take it more seriously than their parents’ generation.

Either way, it’s good news that divorce is becoming less common. The tides of culture may constantly change, but the sacred institution of marriage as defined by God never will.

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
