A Generation Gap Among Evangelicals

posted by swaldman

We numbers junkies thank Laurie Goodstein at the New York Times for doing a special slice-and-dice on the exit polls that gives us this fascinating nugget:
Obama doubled his support among evangelicals (Obamagelicals, as we like to call them) ages 18-29 (getting 32% compared to 16% in 2004).
What the Times didn’t mention is that Obama actually went down among evangelicals 65 and older (Kerry got 32% of them; Obama got 26%)
In other words, in 2004 the senior evangelicals were more Democratic than the juniors. Now it’s the other way around.

My heart grieves for christians who dont stand firmly on the word of God. Because the economy is bad and our united states is in a decling situation that does not means that we are to not stand on basic biblical priniciples of Jesus Christ. God is pro life and He says that marriage is between a man an a woman. The word of God also says that when righteousness is in office the people are at peace. Why do we not hold on to God’s word especially when times are not good that is when He will show himself as the Lord of our lifes. But, when we step away from His word and believe the words of man we break the heart of Jesus. Obama is not God, God is God and He commands righteouness.

Good Bye
Today is my last day at Beliefnet (which I co-founded in 1999). The swirling emotions: sadness, relief, love, humility, pride, anxiety. But mostly deep, deep gratitude. How many people get to come up with an idea and have rich people invest money to make it a reality? How many people get to create
