Generation Z on religion

Boomers may have been the most destructive generation in history, but Gen X were the worst parents.

For years, religious scholars and observers have argued that the decline in American religious life is explained by other factors or isn’t important: it’s because this generation is still young; this generation just doesn’t like institutions; Americans are just as likely to believe in God and pray; more young Americans are now spiritual instead; the changes are small. The most recent survey data, which you’ve seen here, knock down every one of those explanations: it’s not age, because Boomers and GenX’ers were perfectly happy to be religious when they were young; iGen is less religious even in beliefs that don’t require religious institutions; fewer Americans now believe in God or pray; fewer, not more, young adults are spiritual; the number who do not participate in religion has doubled. iGen’ers are less religious and less spiritual, publicly and privately, and strikingly different from previous generations when they were young. The move away from religion is no longer piecemeal, small, or uncertain; it is large and definitive. More young Americans are thoroughly secular, disconnecting completely from religion, spirituality, and the larger questions of life. These complete nonbelievers are still a minority, but their numbers have swelled significantly in a very short period of time. More iGen’ers than any other living generation are unconnected to religion.

Face it, you’ve been had. There are a lot of people on the right who think it’s a good idea to gaslight their own side to meme victory into existence, like a Stuart Smalley affirmation. It’s a lie they wanted to tell you for your own good and you fell for it because you wanted it to be true.

To actually believe in the Generation Zyklon meme you’d have to be a cosmopolitan elite, a shut-in NEET with the windows painted black, or a Gen X parent who’d rather send their kids to fight a war than get off their asses, put on their black leather trenchcoats, go outside, and actually do something. Well I got news for you Gen Xers out there, if you don’t want to take your kids to church Jordan Peterson will be happy to do it for you, and charge them $500 per head too.

Will any religions survive? Evangelical churches have not lost as many members over the last few decades as other Christian denominations have. That might be because they’ve recognized that iGen’ers and Millennials want religion to complete them—to strengthen their relationships and give them a sense of purpose. Some of those churches will begin to loosen their views on premarital sex, same-sex marriage, and transgender individuals as their acceptance becomes more mainstream, even among religious people. Religion will survive, but it will be a flexible, open, equal religion that gives people a sense of belonging and meaning and that reaches less than half of Americans. It is unclear where iGen’ers will find community interaction to replace religion. Perhaps they won’t find it at all, content to rely on their social media network, with deleterious impacts on their mental health. Or perhaps iGen’ers will affiliate with others who share their interests rather than building community through religion. Either way, the structure of American community will fundamentally change.

I genuinely can’t wait to see how the new Manicheans out there manage to conclude WINNARZ from this. The way they talk about Christianity waxing and waning in cycles, you’d think they were actually talking about Astrology or something.

      So everyone keeps saying…in the complete absence of statistical or anecdotal evidence. There’s a reason this book’s title is “Why Today’s Super-Connected Kids Are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy–and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood”.

      The stupid thing is, all anyone had to do was talk to them. I ask every young person I meet how many genders there are.

    In a way it’s better to be surrounded by those who reject Christianity then to be surrounded by nominal Catholics. I was surrounded by nominal Catholics when I was a kid, they were from the WW2 generation, the so-called “Greatest Generation”, they were a bunch of phonies. They didn’t believe, they just pretended to believe, it was a charade. Nominal Catholics also reject Christianity but they will never admit it. It’s better to be surrounded by people who are honest about their lack of religious beliefs than to be surrounded by people who are not honest and who are phonies.

    The times I tried to talk about the Catholic Faith to the nominal Catholics I grew up with, they would look at me like I was crazy. They never discussed the Catholic Faith, never, they never wanted to talk about Catholicism. Even my “Catholic” godparents. My “Catholic” godmother would mock me when I was a kid because I went to Mass. Some Catholic godmother. And it wasn’t just my family, alot of so-called Catholic families were the same way as my family.

    At the Sunday table with my family, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, I mentioned once about Vatican Two and the changes in the Church and the changes in the Mass and not one member of my family had any idea of what I was talking about. They very quickly changed the subject. I have no idea why they bothered to call themselves “Catholics”, no idea.

    My parents didn’t go to Mass on Sundays but they, lol, demanded I go. I had no problem with that, I liked going to Mass. But it was weird that I went to Mass by myself. Then my father and others in my family would mock me for going to Mass. They were totally f*cked up and I was very happy when I left my childhood home when I was 17. The so-called Catholic high school I attended, the Catholic Faith was never mentioned, let alone taught. We had to go to religious class, the Christian brothers taught us Buddhism, Hinduism, and the religion of Pre-Christian Greece, the gods of Mt. Olympus, that’s it. We, us students, weren’t taught anything about Catholicism, NOTHING. Better to be surrounded by those who are honest about rejecting Christianity. At least they’re honest and you know up-front who you’re dealing with, which is alot more than I can say about the “Catholics” I grew up with.

    itzy people deal away with organized religion and go straight to the end times prophecy so I conclude they are the most religious generation of them all in all religions. why be around masses of people if you don’t have to and they are never sincere-sapes not even once? “go to mass” = mass of people literally. just pray in the closet get your treestump https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMqtFs4aElc and wait for Christ. life was never about more than organizing your family and if they are shit you fall off the road and become some grifter amongst the other grifter mass called society. the internet if the social marketplace, internet weimar republic. create new family new people

    if older generations are a mark of religiousness, they themselves being the perps who tore down their own halos (muh jews/changingsociety/technology did this!!!), then the answer to the future does not lie in the past and these chillums are within their rights to try something different,

    cannibals have been eating people for 60k years, jews have been dressing like undertaker shilling for the odd 5k, the amish are just the final form of the god fearing farming/herding peasant. combine sapes and the middle class and you get neurotic critters without a place, lukewarm people that will never be sincere until they find their niche. I believe they are condemning themselves perpetually with their changing of skins every year about current year muh muhs. they are dysfunctional people that refuse to settle down with what is good in life, like treestumps all the worlds culture for free on a screen and eating only kosher food in moderation.

    the only question is if they choose to be bad apples or are the fruits of bad apples. life is a struggle for everyone everyday thanks to the white man trusting current year mysticism but if that is so then so it is roll with the punches or go cry in the gutter because God is not fullfilling your baby-ass wiping communist dreams. “BUT BICE TECHNOLOGY IS HURTING PEOPLE THEY JUST CAN*T HANDLE IT” well then we sign the grand sape-papers and declare 99% of the planet mentally unfit and insane.

    another thing is that people are not just equipped to be good and then God has rigged the game and along with all extinct homos then that is pretty a pretty grim reality, some might say certain big apes are very aware of themselves and choose to be cannibal rapists because not all animals in the jungel are nice far from it.

    TLDR; a thirteen year old memer did not tear down organized goodboy religion, his older peers choose to do that for him and themselves, willingly. that is the only bulletpoint and the rest of the data is just fluff and borderliner e-celeb sensationalism sort of how all psychotherapy is just babble and a ruse so people ignore basic good vs evil. and thusly then the caveat of what chance did an inbred 56IQ bigape eating brains have to be good and should he go to hell for it?

    itz just all very interesting. Go team Neanderhtal! booo! for team sapes-not even once. The White Man is an alien on this planet.
