Why Millennials Don’t Go to Church

I’m a Christian millennial.  But you know what?  I’m in the minority.  According to one study, just 20% of Americans under 30 believe attending church is important, and 59% of them raised in a church have dropped out.  Most of my peers spend their Sunday mornings... read more

In the past month  or so, Belgian politics have been shook up with a corruption scandal that would make even Nixon turn up his nose.  News last month broke that since 2008, Brussels Mayor Yvan Mayeur and an ally had each collected over 100,000 euros for meetings that... read more

The Young Conservatives of France

If you’re under 30 and conservative, as the saying goes, then you have no heart.  But if you’re over 30 and a liberal, then you have no sense.  Indeed, followers of the political left tend to be a lot younger than their counterparts on the right.  There’s a reason... read more
