Young Evangelicals have a surprising diversity of political views

Below is an intereting article on the political views of 18-29 year olds. While maintaining opposition to abortion and supporting the death penalty, they also favor strict environmental standards for companis.

Do these results match up with the values of younger people that you know?

I find this up and coming generation fascinating. I am not sure what to think about them, but I will refuse to worry. They will be just what we need (or deserve).

For my generation, Satan's deception was Wall Street's "Green Money" religion. Now, for this generation, the deception is Al Gore's "Green" religion. Each generation is deceived and falls.

Repentance will be required of this generation too.

Here is the good news; it looks like this generation may not be lovers of money.

My friend, we continue to live in a consumer culture, and no generation is exempt from this influence. However, in many ways, the younger generation is less driven by money. For instance, they will soon quit a company that does not match their values, even if they are being paid well. I am much the same way on this.
