Sojourners Press Items
Today in Washington, Sojourners released a study focused on young evangelicals. Meant to explore the post-Culture War politics of a generation of young, civically engaged Christians, the study detailed several emerging dynamics. The demographic overview showed mostly single, highly educated self-identifying evangelical Christians, 92% of which attended church once or more per week. The study asked about both church and civic life, and found that while 61% of respondents heard about homosexuality from the pulpit within the last year, 73% heard about poverty from the pulpit. The study also notes that, like the general public, 60% list both economic issues like jobs and budget issues as one of the two most important issues in deciding their vote in the 2012 election, countering the conventional wisdom that evangelicals vote predominantly on social issues.
