America continues drifting in the direction of other post-Christian cultures like Britain and Australia.
Traditional moral values are continually undermined or eliminated.
And this shocking new poll shows just how much it’s impacted the next generation.
With radical atheists driving God from government schools, perhaps it was only a matter of time.
But today’s society is losing the moral foundation it was built upon.
And Generation Z (born between 1999 and 2014) is showing the repercussions of those past decisions.
Christian Headlines reports:
The poll found that 24 percent of teens (ages 13-18) strongly believe that “what is morally right and wrong changes over time based on society.” Among Boomers – those born between 1946 and 1964 – only 12 percent strongly affirm the statement.
Among Millennials (born between 1984 and 1998), 21 percent strongly believe in moral relativity, while 18 percent of Gen X (born between 1965 and 1983) affirm it.
The survey, released Tuesday, also shows teens are more liberal than older generations on several issues. For example:
Only 20 percent of teens strongly believe homosexual behavior is morally wrong. It’s the lowest percentage among all generations.
34 percent of teens strongly believe lying is morally wrong, compared to 50 percent of Gen X and 54 percent of Boomers who strongly believe it.
29 percent of teens strongly believe abortion is morally wrong. While that percent is higher than may be expected, it nevertheless is the lowest percentage among all generations.
Moral relativism is a dangerous philosophy.
It’s based on the belief that there are no universal moral truths (a rejection of the natural law philosophy held by America’s founding fathers).
Instead, moral relativists believe right or wrong can be relative to social, cultural, historical, or personal circumstances.
In a society based on moral relativism, lying, stealing, cheating, and even murder could quickly become commonplace.
While there’s still time to stop America’s shift toward moral relativism, action must be taken sooner than later.
