    My grandmother was born in a Jewish family near Moscow in 1881 she married a Swedish-American engineer who was an atheist. They were never observant. None of the 6 children [my father and siblings] ever identified as Jewish. For the majority of 21st century people identifying as Jewish, it is a heritage with traditions but the Torah is no longer the book that guides their lives, it is not a belief system. That is just what happens to old superstitions, they just fade into cultural traditions without keeping the religious mantle. Christmas and Easter are religious holidays for a small portion of Americans and Europeans today. Same thing that has happened with a majority of Jews is now happening with the majority of Americans of European descent, casting off old superstitions and realizing myths and legends for what they are.

    @NAY – It is not a “reverse” print, it is simply the angle of the camera in relation to the direction the wind was blowing.

    The unique thing about America at the time of its creation is the the power did NOT come from a divine source as it had throughout Europe since the formation of the Holy Roman Empire in 800AD. Kings were divinely authorized to rule by the Church. In America the people got their rights from the government protection of those rights, not a divine source.

    The flag is used in tons of ads now and 7/4 weekend. Has been for decades. The position of the printed flag rule does not apply in a photograph of a physical flag. How could it?
    The rules of flag etiquette are optional.

    @ rotten robbie pompoms
    Male, hetero, from 1972 to 1981 impregnated and aborted 5 times with 4 women
    Former marketing director for a group of midwest abortion centers. So I have “sold” hundreds if not thousands of women on the idea that termination is the wise choice.
    Master at manipulation so getting a woman to abort was never a problem.
    I still at 63 enjoy a lively sex life, mostly with younger women. I suspect I’m shooting blanks these days.

    too small a segment to accurately sample

    “real catholics” then make up about 15% of those that self identify as papists.

    Which is a fine thing, worthy cause.

  • [-3] May 27, 2016 at 12:46pm

    If that were true we could close 90% of Catholic churches in America, which would be a fantastic thing IMHO.

    Catholic women in America use contraception and have abortions at the same rate as all women.

    Like the article, you start with a myth, “America is an overwhelmingly faithful county, with the vast majority of citizens embracing the existence of a higher power”,

    This is increasingly untrue. Nones, with no religious affiliation and no desire to connect are using “Christian” in a tribal identity rather than belief system. Christian is a legacy from their ancestors, not a guidance of values and behaviors as you would suggest, Don’t mischaracterize them as believers in the superstitions of right-wing Christianity, those social values you hold so dear are the precise cause of the Rise of the Nones.

    Among college-educated Millennials, 54% have no religion. The citizens born from 1982 to 2000 are now the largest demographic group and they will be voters next November. This is not fertile ground for religion, it is hostile territory.
    What’s my proof? Check out what one leading evangelical said in August 2015;
    “…three out of four people in America do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ…., the reality is that seventy-four percent of our churches in America are plateaued or declining.” that’s Ronnie Floyd, 2015 President of the Southern Baptist Convention speaking the cold, hard truth.
    Stick a fork in it, You are done.
    For every one adult added to the Christian or Catholic rolls, 10 leave. 80% of all new church members are just moving from Catholic to Protestant or the reverse. Zero net gain.

    Bunch of whiny babies is precisely why non-breeder askew the cost and burden of rug rat and ankle grabbers.
    I never once wanted kids, and the 5 abortions I paid for prove my commitment to remaining childfree

  • [-1] May 27, 2016 at 10:08am

    That’s silly.

  • [-5] May 27, 2016 at 10:07am

    40% of people in America now 18-35 will never marry.
    Less than half today live in a old style M+F + Kids family unit and that is expected to fall even lower.
    Family Values is a myth of the Xian right based on a rose-colored myth of 1950s America.
    Back to the Future is just a movie.

    The same percentage of Catholic women exercise their rights of reproductive choice as do any other segment of the American population. 90% use birth control and 1 in 3 have an abortion.

    A rule like yours would eliminate another big chunk of that already dwindling cult.

  • [-2] May 27, 2016 at 10:01am

    Why do non-breeders marry? Something like 1100 various protections and benefits afforded licensed couples.

  • [1] May 27, 2016 at 10:00am

    Generally it is the sanctimonious manner in which breeders declare as if it were a benediction. “We’re starting a family”. So what?

    Just as a tangent, when are we going to reduce the deductions for children to tax credits for two only? Anything beyond replacement should not be granted tax benefits because that cost the nation more in services such as schools.

    Yes, I do not like children, 63 and I told my 3rd grade teacher when I was 8 that I would never have children and thanks to the right of reproductive choice and Planned Parenthood I have successfully avoided their burden.

    The urban myth of transgender disguised male predators will be free now to snatch your wives and children is simply an absurd example of mass paranoid delusions from a ginned up threat fostered by right wing pathological liars and FOX News

    MasterBaterKey, you are the reason transgender people need protection in laws and civil rights. Cisgender children and adults are far more likely to be perpetrators of violence and transgenders are the probable victims.
