Is religion dying out? Fewer people believe in God than 30 years ago – but millennials are more likely to have faith in an afterlife

People believe more in the afterlife than ever as a ‘rise in the something-for-nothing mentality’, an academic has argued.

Despite belief in God falling to lower levels than at any time in history in US society, there is an increasing belief in the afterlife among US citizens, a survey found.

Can a Catholic in good conscience vote for Trump?

.- As Republican frontrunner Donald Trump moves closer to the presidential nomination, Catholics are questioning whether voting for the billionaire-turned-politician is a wise – or even moral – option.

On March 7, dozens of prominent Catholic leaders released an appealcalling Trump “manifestly unfit to be president of the United States.”

The most common groups are the FBI’s DITU — Data Intercept Technology Unit (run by an individual with a degree in law and psychology), the NSA of course, The NSA TAO (Tailored Access Operations), and Cyber-Command. Both the NSA and Cyber-Command are based at Fort Meade in Maryland.

Now there are a few private companies, think of Blackwater” on a cyber-level, which are also master’s of intrusion, hacking, identity theft, spoofing and 24/7 harassment of anyone who has been illegally and unconstitutionally watch-listed as a domestic threat. However NSA still has the budget, the tech-toys, the software and extra-judicial tactics which trump any of the subsequently mentioned private groups.
