Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Americans without religious affiliation? No Kidding

Gallup is out with numbers that say that Americans increasingly have no religious affiliation: (I can't get their stupid graph to come up so go look at it and pretend I put it here:)

Pay attention to the year 1963, the year that nonsectarian Bible reading was banned from school. From what I see the unaffiliated rate was pretty constant until that year.

It's pretty ridiculous for Christians to be surprised at these numbers. Like it says in Romans 10:14:

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?

If every Christian parent had pulled their child out of school in the early sixties, our country would not be in the shape it's in. The globalist/collectivist tool is always ignorance. Parents did not even consider homeschooling or alternative education methods because they were conditioned to believe education has to be practiced by "experts". The reliance on "experts" and the fragmentation of our society could be fodder for many more posts.
