“Americans tend to fib about church attendance, study finds” (Web, May 19) was interesting, but based on those we elect, I’m wondering if a majority of Americans even attends church.

These days, the Democrats are the pro-abortion, pro-homosexual-agenda party that believes the government is the highest authority, the decider of what is good and evil and the provider of all good things. The party also seems to do a lot of lying (e.g., Obamacare, Benghazi, VA hospital secret list, etc.). Those things are contrary to the Old Testament, which applies to Christians, Jews and Muslims. Yet voters from all of these groups consistently go for Democrats.

Church attendance is extremely important because Christianity is under attack in the United States. Parents can’t count on the public schools to teach Christian values — and they certainly won’t find them taught in movies or on television. That leaves Bible study in the home and church attendance once or twice a week. I don’t know how much is going on in the former, and I question what’s being taught in some of the latter.
