Christians Are Having Babies Faster Than Secularists

This is good to hear:

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, social scientist Arthur Brooks notes that if you pick 100 adults out of the population who attend their houses of worship nearly every week, they would have 223 children among them. But among 100 people who attend religious services less than once a year—or never—you would find 158 kids. That's a 41 percent fertility gap between religious and secular people.

Even worse—if you are a secularist—religious people who identify themselves as politically "conservative" or "very conservative" are having, on average, an astonishing 78 percent more kids than secular liberals, Brooks writes.

This is significant, because kids tend to grow up to worship the way their parents do. In a generation or two, we are going to have a bumper crop of conservative citizens. Candidates who appeal to Christians will win more elections simply because of demographics.

It is a good article from Chuck Colson. Read the rest at the link above.

Conservatives are having children 78% faster than secular liberals. That is why there is such an effort by the left to destroy the morals of our children. Whether it be in school, TV, music, etc... the liberals are trying to attack our Christian values.
