A majority of Americans in a new survey reject the idea that society is better off if marriage and procreation are prioritized. However, white evangelicals — who often hold more traditional views on the issue — think just the opposite.
The Pew Research Center survey found that only 34 percent of U.S. adults believe society is better off if “people make marriage and having children a priority,” while 64 percent believe society is “just as well off if people have priorities other than marriage and children.”
Yet among white evangelicals, 56 percent say society is better off with marriage and procreation being prioritized, while 41 percent say other priorities are fine.
White evangelicals are the only religious subgroup with majority support for the marriage and procreation segment of the poll. Catholics (35 percent), black Protestants (36 percent) and white non-evangelical Protestants (35 percent) are all under 40 percent on that specific answer.
Among the religiously unaffiliated, 16 percent say society is better off with people prioritizing marriage and childrearing, while 82 percent believe society is just as well off with other priorities.
“These patterns extend to measures of religious observance, too,” Pew’s Stephanie Kramer wrote in an online analysis. “For example, highly religious people — those who say religion is very important in their lives and those who attend religious services regularly — are more likely than Americans who say religion is less important or attend religious services less frequently to say that society is better off if people prioritize marriage and procreation.”
The poll also revealed a significant political divide: Republicans (50 percent) are twice as likely as Democrats (22 percent) to say society is better off prioritizing marriage and childrearing.Evangelicals Are Only Group to Say Marriage and Children Should Be a Priority: Poll

Whenever a people chooses life over death, future victory over immediate pleasure, God approves.
If it’s true for Muslims — who are enemies of Christians (and, therefore, enemies of Christ)1, but will still be given a chunk of the future due to their refusal to abort their children, their partial obedience to God — then it is true for Evangelical White Americans as well.
To the extent that they fear and obey the Lord, to the extent they uphold the commandments, to that same extent they will be blessed.
The people who want to inherit the future, will inherit the future.
Not race, but obedience to God, provides salvation. And the blessings are national, corporate and group, as surely as they are individual.
Now, let’s see if those Evangelical White Americans give their future to their enemies who run the explicitly Anti-Christian Public schools, in the name of Free Babysitting.
They would be wise not to.
Free Stuff has ever been the preferred bait of the snakeheads.
(Same deal for Evangelical Black Americans, by the way. “There is only One Law.” If they want to win, the road to victory is fundamentally the same as it is for White Americans.
But, it is up to the Black Man to decide if he wants to walk along it, and has the commitment to hold on till the end.)
Note that the Orthodox Jews are still beating the rest of the civilized world2 hollow, with four educated, self-disciplined kids per family. A standard for believing Christians — of all races — to reach for.
And then surpass, if they have the gumption to.
1“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”Matthew 25:31-46, English Standard Version
Note that Christ condemns those nations who neglect to take care of His people, His adopted brothers — male and female, young and old.
As for those nations who go out of their way to harm, rob, cheat, rape, and kill them?
Muslims — and Secularist — governments don’t believe in the Law of God.
Just the Stability of their Power Structure.
But what Muslim — and Secularist — government distain in the Name of Their Power, God treasures in the Name of His Righteousness.
And what God treasures, Christian nations are expected to uphold.
<points to the Shining Sword in His Hand>
For God values Righteousness FAR ABOVE the Stability of a Christian Power Structure.
2When Africa chooses to uphold the Law of God, then they will enter the realm of the civilized.3 They may well be making the transition already… but still have a lot of corruption to ditch.
While the Africans come in, the West — from its abortions and euthanasia, to its frank contempt for both the Rule of Law and objective reality — is on it’s way out.
Let’s see what happens between now and AD 2200.
And let’s see if those White Evangelicals are able to turn their ship around, at least in the Americas. Consistent, growing-deepening obedience to God inevitably brings Real-Deal Legitimate Authority, after all…
3Note the market that I have chosen: not money or power or creature comforts, but law and justice and a future, all based on the only worthwhile Source of the Law, the life and words of Jesus Christ.
Don’t mix the fruits of success with the roots of success. Symbols of success
— the “A” on the paper of a cheater, and the large bank account of a robber/government-protected business —
are not the same as actual success
— the “A” on the paper of the man who earned it, and the large bank account of a successful businessman who earned it in the free market, without the cheating hand of the State to shield him.
Actually, I’d take the “C” of an honest man over the “A” of a liar. And also, a bankrupt honest businessman over a State-subsidy-protected tycoon.
