Young women…18-29…are getting woke*…with a vengeance…!

“I suspect these numbers will continue moving away from religion in
years to come, in large part because of the close ties between
conservative Christians and the current administration.

White
evangelicals have anchored themselves to the most corrupt,
scandal-prone, immoral, ignorant politician we’ve ever seen, and as his
political fortunes fade away, so will their religious power.

Just as we
saw with the marriage equality debate, if their faith can’t help them
answer the easiest moral question of our time, why should anyone trust
their judgment?

The backlash to Donald Trump is coming — with a
vengeance — and I can only hope the most powerful evangelicals go down
with that ship. They’ve chosen temporary power over long-term stability,
and the foundation continues to crumble…”

“I was sleeping, but now I’m woke.” ‘Woke’ is increasingly used as a byword for social awareness.
(merriam-webster.com)  Getting woke
is like being in the Matrix and taking the red pill. You get a sudden
understanding of what’s really going on and find out you were wrong
about much of what you understood to be truth.

“No Religion” Is Now Australia’s Number One Belief Category…
 
     

      

In 1966 just 0.8% of Australians ticked the “no religion” box.

“For
the first time ever, “no religion” has overtaken any single religious
denomination, toppling Catholicism as the number one religious
affiliation for Australians, the latest national census released on Tuesday revealed.

Christianity is still the most common religion (52% of Australians
identified as any of the Christian denominations) but has been declining
in popularity in Australia for the past 50 years – in 1966, 88% of
Australians identified as Christian and by 1991 it was 74%.”

Also… “…strongly secular communities have far less religious violence. Secular
neutrality is a more stabilising principle than Christianity — which
claims spiritual superiority over Islam. Secularism is neutral to all
religions — it does not favour any faith over another — it does not
inflame tensions between Sunni and Shiite, or Protestant against
Catholic; it simply opposes all hostility based on religious belief.”

Amen!

7% is still a lot of people, just remember that. 7% of people can still do a lot of damage.

unfortunately, it is not 7-10%, it is much, much worse… (source)
