Professor Arthur Brooks of Syracuse University brings encouraging news for religious conservatives in our ongoing struggle for the soul of the country: we’re producing far more children than our secular leftist neighbors. Brooks sees a 41% fertility gap between secular and religious people, but another recent study shows that with more and more Americans going to college this advantage could evaporate. Some two thirds of students raised in church-going families who attend university reduce their religious participation during higher education, and nearly 30% of them never come back to regular, monthly attendance at religious services. This means a national increase in religious affiliation and conservative values depends on doing a better job at keeping our kids connected to Biblical principles during their college years. Among all the ministries and outreach programs, the efforts to inspire and touch busy, often conflicted American college kids may be the most important for building a growing majority of people of faith.
