Fundigelicals scare their kids

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]mysticknyght)

It's easy for Fundigelicals to scare off kids:

In 2002, the SBC's Council on Family Life reported that roughly 88 percent of evangelical children are leaving the church shortly after they graduate from high school. Dr. Frank Page, the denomination's new president, says SBC churches need to counter that statistic by finding ways to make themselves more relatable, more pertinent and significant to students before they graduate.

Here's the part I like, though. OK, I know this is Agape Press, but look at this graf:

Even though Christian students are under attack for their beliefs in many public schools today, Page believes those who are firmly grounded in their faith can have a "salt and light" influence on their peers and teachers. Nevertheless, the SBC president says his prayer is that more churches will begin offering Christian schools, both for families who can and for those who cannot afford such education.

They're able to write this "we're under attack" shit so casually. Tell a lie enough times...
