Opinions of Christianity on the decline among younger generations. Wow, who'd have thought it? 91% negative is a pretty cold slap.

Funny, I believe these numbers are accurate, but I don't believe the picture is clear. I tend to think that young folks are far less inhibited about expressing a negative opinion about Christianity than they once were. I do not take that as hostility.

Should I?

Hmm. Good question. I'm assuming my age category still leaves me with the "younger generation," and I can only go with my own experiences.

But I'd say it's a bit of both -- the younger generation is more open and honest about how they feel, but they also live in an age where "evangelicals" are a political force of overbearing, hypocritical old white guys who have drug-addled sex with gay prostitutes.

So, ya know, there's that.
