O'Reilly: Decline Of Christian Values Linked To Secular Media

A recent Pew Research report conveyed that Americans who identify as Christian fell from 78.4 percent to 70.6 percent between 2007 and 2014. On Wednesday, Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly said that "people of faith are being marginalized by a secular media and pernicious entertainment." He also said "The rap industry, for example, often glorifies depraved behavior, and that sinks into the minds of some young people -- the group that is most likely to reject religion. Also, many movies and TV shows promote non-traditional values. If you are a person of faith, then the media generally thinks you are a loon."

On the other hand, Rev. Tony Lee, the senior pastor at the Community of Hope African Methodist Episcopal Church said, "I think we need to be very careful about some of the coded language in that, because in many ways that is kind of using black culture as a scapegoat for the decline of Christianity." In addition, Christian rapper Lecrae stated "Millennials are not finding their place within church because the boomer generation is continuing to express the gospel in a language that is theirs. My prayer is we will be able to turn the corner and will be able to reach back out to their generation."
