The United States of America isn't actually one nation under God. Very few Americans truly worship the one true God, and COVID-19 has only made that worse. Church Militant's Hunter Bradford exposes the religious consequences of the China virus in the "land of the free."
The coronavirus is wearing down the religiosity of Americans. According to a new survey from Pew Research, the percentage of Americans who identify as Christian now stands at 63%, down from 65% in 2019 and 78% in 2007.
This comes after the lockdown, when religious leaders, including the Catholic bishops, were fine with shutting down churches. At Church Militant's Enough Is Enough rally in Baltimore, Fr. James Altman had some words to say about the decisions bishops made during the pandemic.
Fr. James Altman: "These monsters in miters are just plain bad. B-A-D. B — they betrayed us during the godless fear-demic. A — they abandoned us in our time of fabricated need. And D — they denied us the sacraments of grace that we need for our eternal souls to get to Heaven."
The Pew Research survey shows people are praying less. The share of Americans who pray daily fell to 45% in 2021, compared with 58% in 2007.
Cdl. Cupich, archbishop of Chicago: "What will we want history to remember about us and how the Church aided in this crisis?"
Pope Benedict XVI once said these words about Holy Mother Church: "She will become small and will have to start afresh, more or less from the beginning, but it will enjoy a fresh blossoming and be seen as man's home, where he will find life and hope beyond death."
Surprisingly, the percentage of Catholics in the United States increased 1% in the last two years, rising from 20 to 21% of the population.
