Millennials Backing Away from Church
College-aged millennials today are far more likely than the general population to be religiously unaffiliated. This is true when they are compared to previous generations as well.

In fact, the Pew Research Center documents that millennials are the least outwardly religious American generation, where “one in four are unaffiliated with any religion, far more than the share of older adults when they were ages 18 to 29.”

Just over 60 percent of millennials say that Christianity is “judgmental,” and 64 percent say that “anti-gay” best describes most churches today.

In ministry circles, it has long been reported that of youth raised in homes that were to some degree “Christian,” roughly three-quarters will jettison that faith after high school. Just under half of this number will return to some level of church involvement in their late 20s or early 30s.
Creepy Christianity
The desire for certainty in an uncertain world yields terrible results.

Speaking broadly, there are two great, competing temptations that tug at the Christian Church. Both of them are based on the fear of man. The first is the one that the theologically orthodox discuss and battle the most: the temptation to forsake Christian doctrine to seek the approval of a hostile culture. This is the old argument that the world would embrace the Church if only the Church were more like the world. It is embraced by much of Mainline Protestantism, and it’s the path to religious extinction. In the effort to appeal to the world, the Church becomes the world, and the logic for its distinct existence disappears. Thus the rapid decline of denomination after denomination that has decided to essentially merge with America’s secular culture.
Drop the ObamaCare Mandate?
Senate's GOP tax reform bill seeks repeal of Obamacare individual mandate

Senate GOP leaders said their tax reform bill will include repeal of Obamacare individual mandate
The mandate requires most Americans to have some form of health coverage during the year or pay a tax
penalty.
An estimated 13 million fewer people would have insurance if the mandate were to be repealed, the
Congressional Budget Office has estimated.

Senate Finance Committee to include repeal of individual mandate in tax bill

The proposed Republican tax reform bill will include repeal of Obamacare's individual mandate requiring most Americans to have some form of health insurance or pay a tax penalty, GOP leaders said Tuesday.

The decision means that Republicans, yet again in 2017, will attempt to gut a key element of the Affordable Care Act.

Church Shooter’s Atheism
Was Devin Kelley’s Atheism Responsible for His Rampage?

Devin Kelley, the Sutherland Church shooter, was an atheist. The evidence for that is quite clear, even if you haven’t seen it in the mainstream media. People who knew him said he was an atheist, he featured a favorite atheist quote on his Facebook page (possibly attributable to Richard Dawkins), and he “liked” four atheist Facebook pages. The information for this is all nicely compiled at the Shadow to Light blog. So was his atheism responsible for his rampage?

When Christians commit crimes, unbelievers frequently blame it on their religion. Try to tell an atheist, though, that three of the great murderers of the 20th century, Josef Stalin and Mao Zedong, were motivated by their atheism. More often than not they’ll answer, “Atheism isn’t a belief. There’s nothing in it that would motivate a person to do anything like that.” Richard Dawkins once wrote,
