” A Trend “

Nearly one in the morning on this frosty night in May, with endless thoughts to script isn’t unusual at least for myself. My son Andre is working the entire night by himself which in fact he likes that and he is scheduled that way all week. Guess the restaurant saves on labor. Trends come and go whether it be in fashion or anything else in the American society. Most trends aren’t worth mentioning, however this particular trend needs to be addressed. Read an article just the day before yesterday anchored by the Pew Exchange. It states the trend of geographic sections in the country whether it being the Midwest, the south, the northeast or the west. The article was quite disturbing as it dealt with religion and its decline from 2007 as to now. The so-called none which as I understood as meaning people who had no affiliation with any type of religion whatsoever. These none in a plural sense had not or didn’t want any form of a Creator or Supreme Being! Some people don’t go to church yet they do pray to the heavens above for peace solace and inner warmth. However these individuals don’t have any desire to do even that. These same persons are good as other are. Their goodness doesn’t overshadow their being genuinely kind. This trend of none in the plural is on the rise dramatically. They were born of different faiths whether it being Catholics, an array of Protestants, including Evangelicals. The section of the country which has the highest percentage of none is the west. This trend comes on the heels of the upcoming national election. A question comes to mind. Does this have anything to do with the Patriot Act which will be renewed in a few day by the US Congress? My contention is that I’ve always thought that religion should be a private matter! Voting should be the same. No one should tell another to vote a certain way. It is clearly up to that individual and others should never interfere with that process. However in America if you happen to be a type of religion the voters will take full advantage of that as in years past the voting technique will do their best to gear that person in their own direction. That shouldn’t be. However it is unfortunately.
