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.

LGBTQ Activists Blitz Drew Brees Over Support Of ‘Bring Your Bible To School’ Program. His Response Is Perfect.

Classy response.

Published

on

LGBTQ activists, or more affectionately, the “alphabet people,” are once again up in a tizzy over a Christian doing what Christians do, supporting things Christians should support. This time the target of their rainbow tinted rage is New Orleans Saints superstar quarterback Drew Brees. Brees is a big supporter of a program that encourages kids to bring their Bibles to school. Brees has openly been a Christian for a long time, so his support of such a program is not at all a shock, but the perpetually offended folks in the homosexual community are nonetheless attacking him over it. Well, Brees has responded and it’s awesome. Here’s a video of Brees talking about his support of the program in question: https://youtu.be/qPFEyeug99g via TheBlaze: Deadspin ran the headline “Drew Brees appears in video for gay conversion therapy sickos, doesn’t understand what the big deal is,” for the story. Others on Twitter accused Brees of being a “bigot” and aligned with a “hateful group.” Brees responded to the online furor through a video on his Instagram trying to clear the air and saying that he was falsely smeared by a deceptive article on the story. https://twitter.com/Amie_Just/status/1169705243216666626 “What I did was I filmed a video recently that was encouraging kids to bring their Bibles to school for national Bring your Bible to School Day,” said Brees. “So I’m not sure why the negativity spread, or why people tried to rope me into certain negativity,” he added. “I do not support any groups that discriminate, or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality. OK? So hopefully that has set the record straight, and we can all move on, because that is not what I stand for.” Unfortunately, you can almost guarantee that such a statement is not at all going…

Pete Buttigieg Adds New Sin To God’s List; It’s A Real Eye Roller

This guy clearly never read the last few verses in the Bible.

Published

Okay, so you know how the Bible, in the book of Revelation warns folks about adding to or taking away from the Bible, the Holy Written Word of God? Apparently, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has never read that portion of Scripture. During a town hall about climate change hosted on CNN, Buttigieg mentioned that skeptics of the science on this issue were committing a grave sin. Yes, that’s right, folks. Apparently the Eleventh Commandment is “Thou Shalt Not Deny Climate Change.” Guess we missed that one on our first read through. via TheBlaze: “Let’s talk in language that is understood across the heartland about faith,” said Buttigieg, an openly gay presidential candidate. “You know, if you believe that God is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it ⁠— countries are at risk of vanishing in low-lying areas ⁠— what do you suppose God thinks of that?” he asked rhetorically. “I bet He thinks it’s messed up,” Buttigieg answered. “And you don’t have to be religious to see the moral dimensions of this, because frankly, every religious and non-religious moral tradition tell us that we have some responsibility of stewardship, some responsibility for taking care of what’s around us,” he continued. https://youtu.be/gq7rwFPC3vU Buttigieg also brought up how not caring about climate change is also an issue of not loving your neighbor. “Not to mention taking care of our neighbor. Eventually it gets to the point where this is less and less about the planet as an abstract thing, and more and more about specific people suffering specific harm because of what we’re doing right now,” Buttigieg said. You know what else God hates, Mr. Buttigieg? People who twist up the meaning of His Word and add their own manmade…
