Religion is, apparently, not “in” anymore, at least not the way it used to be, according to a new poll. Results show that in a single generation the Christian Church drop-rate has increased five-fold. That’s a huge number. Goes on to show that “80% of people raised in a church will disengage before they are 30.” On the other hand, there are some people who take religious devotion so seriously that they punish others for not sharing the same beliefs. That’s exactly what seems to have happened in an Indiana courtroom recently.
A father is fighting back after losing custody of his children in Indiana. Craig Scarberry has shared 50/50 custody of his three kids with his ex-wife for 4 years. But when that time was just recently reduced to 4 hours per week, he started digging to find out why, and he had a shocker. The Judge wrote, “The father did not participate in the same religious training as the mother … father was agnostic.” The ruling also stated, “… when the father considered himself a Christian, the parties were able to communicate relatively effectively.”
