I was reading a religious article on Liberal Christianity and then I read some of the comments on this article. This is one comment that caught my attention. It explains itself.
“My family came from a long line of liberal Christians. My great-grandparents were Catholics who became Congregationalists, my grandparents were Congregationalists who became Unitarian Universalists, my father was a Unitarian Universalist who became an atheist, my mother a Christian who became an agnostic, and my sister and I are atheists who've adopted moral utilitarianism as the framework of our morality.
Since all of us were all raised in liberal households that encouraged open and individual thought, we came up with our own ideas, and now our younger members have come to the honest conclusion that God does not exist. We don't believe you need religion to be a good person. You don’t need someone to tell your moral obligation to other people.
That's why liberal Christianity will die- liberals don't need it. Its problem is simple: no matter how accepting you are of homosexuals or women or other faiths, you won't win over the growing number of people who don't believe in a higher power. Conservatives, people who indoctrinate their children from a young age, will pass Christianity on to their children. That's the great divide, between the religious and the non-religious.”
Wow what a statement!
Failed faith in parents, teaches, and failed faith in children until there is no faith at all.
