PEW: Majority Of Conservatives Believe Colleges Bad For The Country

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

A recent PEW Research survey found that 58% of Republicans and Independents believe colleges and universities now have a negative impact on our nation---the first time a majority of conservatives have expressed that view.

The same survey found that 72% of Democrats and progressives now believe colleges and universities have a positive impact on our nation.

Both groups are negative toward the news media---85% of Republicans and even 46% of Democrats believe the news media has a negative impact on our country.

PEW doesn't speculate about why people feel as they do, but the "Facts" and the "Why" certainly identifies the social, ideological and moral divide in our country.

Last May, then Vice President Joe Biden praised Tim Gill for his wonderful work in advancing the LGBTQ agenda saying "no telling where the agenda would be without Gill."

Attorney Mary Bonauto, who argued successfully in the same-sex marriage case "Obergefell v. Hodges" ---the case where the Court supposedly redefined marriage---agrees with Biden in praising Gill.

Tech Millionaire Tim Gill is now telling Rolling Stone Magazine he is going to "punish the wicked" who stand in the way of "progress."

Who are the "wicked" in his mind?

Christian writer Rod Dreher in his new book, "The Benedict Option," is calling for Christians to retreat to "conscience-forming communities" similar to those of 3rd and 4th-century monks to avoid the coming persecution.

Some Christian leaders agree.

Speaking at the Sixth Annual Family Leadership Summit on Saturday, nationally renowned evangelical pastor and best selling author Dr. Jim Garlow explained how man and woman are created in the image of God and that gay "marriage" is "demonic" because it perversely mimics and mocks God's design for love and children, and seeks "to destroy the very image of God upon the planet."

The Associated Press reported Sunday that lawyers for Richland, WA., florist Barronelle Stutzman are now asking the United States Supreme Court to reverse a Washington State court's decision earlier this year that found her guilty of discrimination for refusing to provide flowers for a so-called "gay wedding."

For more than 4 years, Stutzman has been in litigation because of her biblical beliefs regarding marriage.

Some in the evangelical community are saying maybe it's time we agreed to disagree over the same-sex issue.

Friday I wrote that Eugene Peterson, the author of "The Message" paraphrase of the Bible, denounced the biblical belief regarding homosexuality and same-sex marriage in an interview with Religion News Services.

LifeWay Christian stores, owned by the Southern Baptist Convention, said they were looking into it and if Peterson now embraced same-sex marriage and homosexual behavior they would remove his books---including "The Message" from their national store chain.

Now Peterson has told The Washington Post, "On further reflection and prayer, I would like to retract that."
