Shift in Demographics: Christians Now a Minority in America
In 2021, Christians became a minority in the United States when the government weaponized gender ideology. Many Christians were ostracized, criminalized, or discriminated against for holding on to their conservative traditions. In other words, the Christian voice became nugatory in a world dominated by far-left-liberal ideology.
1960s: Prayers were banned
The mid-17th century saw America’s education system established with a strong influence of Christian values and Biblical morals. Colonists saw education as a means to promote Christian virtues such as reading the Bible and praying. God’s spirit moved through the first and second great awakenings.
In the early 1900s, Christian revivals flourished across America as God’s spirit moved to establish mission work and churches that would later define American Christianity. However, the landscape changed after two world wars, marking the end of the gilded age and ushering in the Age of Aquarius in the 1960s.
After World War I, modernists moved to ban teaching evolution to eliminate God in the school system. After World War II, militant feminist Madalyn Murray O’Hair was the figurehead that banned prayers and Bible reading in public schools in 1962.
She founded the American Atheists in 1963 and famously said, “Two hands working can do more than a thousand clasped in prayer,” which satirized those who prayed against it. It appears to be a victory for atheists, but the ban has set the motion for something more sinister.
The ban set the motion for something more sinister.
2015: The start of something big!
Legalizing the gay lifestyle
In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage to recognize those seeking legal validation in their love.
Glamour magazine awarded Caitlyn Jenner “Woman of the Year” and received the Arthur Ashe ‘Courage Award.’ Since then, how we look at women is no longer based on biology but on feelings and self-identity.
The Drag Queen Story Hour was founded in the same year, and henceforth, the “transgender craze” erupted. In the years that followed, LBGTQIA advocates would dominate women’s space in beauty pageants, women’s sports, and even motherhood.
2020: Social justice is weaponized
In 2019, Climate Change policies gained traction that will drastically affect the economy and be weaponized to persecute Christians in the coming years.
Meantime, LGBTQ+ rights and privilege began the rapid ascent and dislodged what was once considered immoral into something beautiful and righteous. Then the pandemic quietly ushered in a new era for left-liberal ideology.
Rise of the atheist group: Black Lives Matter
In 2020, the rise of the Marxist atheist group Black Lives Matter aligned with social justice reforms justified subversion. Three years later, in 2023, the rampant looting in Democrat cities resulted in a significant mass exodus of people.
Although mass gatherings were prohibited, Black protests and looting were widely justified by Democrat states like San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, and Chicago. Meanwhile, churches were fined, and pastors went to jail for gathering with social distancing and wearing masks.
The pandemic ushered a new era for left ideology.
2021, The Gender Equality Act
The Gender Equality Act of 2021 was a positive step toward greater inclusivity and equality.
But it also sought the legitimization of what conservative Christians deemed immoral. Policies were set to elevate LGBTQIA rights as a priority of the Biden administration, along with open borders and Climate Change policies.
Immediately after President Bide took office, the White House added gender pronouns to the website. Two years into his term, Biden welcomed LGBTQ to the White House and flew the PRIDE flag as literally the centerpiece of his accomplishment.
By this time, abortion clinics had been institutionalized. The PRIDE March had spread globally. It was also the beginning of normalizing pedophilia and prostitution in America and what child abuse is under the guise of gender-affirming care.
In short, self-worship became dominant, significantly deviating from traditional divine values.
Outrage to those who disagree
The outrage towards Christians who disagree with the gender narrative is “You can’t offend me, but I’ll offend you. I embrace sin and oppose those who challenge it.” This mentality is born out of self-glorification and truth relativism fueled by Hollywood, mainstream media, social media, and far-left politicians.
Persecution of THOSE who speak against sin.
Self-glorification and truth relativism in modern America
In 2023, we began to see how schools and state laws embraced LGBTQIA rights, climate change fear, wilful abortion, and duplicitous race theories. All these can be summed into idolatry, where God has no place.
Today, people seek to please themselves rather than God—which is self-idolatry. They flaunt their sin and mock God. But amid what they call “progressive change” is the persecution of conservative Christians who speak against sin, which they call human rights.
With the steady decline of church membership, 2021 ushers a new age where Christianity has become a minority in America.
