American Family Association: Gospel the Only Hope for Increasingly Unhappy Americans
TUPELO, Miss.—Americans haven’t been this unhappy since the 1970s, and half of Americans report feeling isolated in recent weeks—a sharp increase from the 23% who felt isolated in 2018, a University of Chicago survey has found.
The survey was launched before the killing of George Floyd and subsequent riots in May, apparently confirming quarantine-like restrictions are a kill-joy.
Ed Vitagliano, executive vice president of American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net), says America’s struggle for happiness is a spiritual battle that only the power of the Gospel can win.
“These poll results are not surprising,” Vitagliano said. “We are in a time of brutal spiritual warfare, and there is clearly much hurt and pain in our nation.
“This is a time for the church to do more than mouth platitudes or engage in mere virtue-signaling,” he continued. “It is a time for the bold proclamation of the gospel to a wounded and suffering people. Our Savior is calling to the lost sheep of America to return to their God and Creator. Jesus Christ is the message that needs to be heard in this dark hour.”
