According to a recent online survey conducted by College Pulse, nearly half of college students believe we should remove “In God We Trust” from our nation’s currency. 53% of respondents thought the motto should remain but 45% believed it should be removed.
“Millennials are the least outwardly religious American generation, where one in four are unaffiliated with any religion, far more than the share of older adults when they were ages 18 to 29. Just over 60 percent of millennials say that Christianity is ‘judgmental,’” according to a 2017 Fox News report.
The rise in anti-religious sentiment may be related to the rise of our liberal colleges’ love affair with socialism and non-religious leaders.
“The fact that many college students have no problem removing the reference to God on American currency is likely related to the fact that many of them also champion famous historical non-religious dictators,” reports The Daily Wire.
“A 2017 survey from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation and conducted by research and data firm YouGov claimed that half of American millennials said they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy. Even worse; 26% of millennials viewed Che Guevara as a hero; 22% viewed Russian President Vladimir Putin the same way, and 18% viewed the father of communism, Karl Marx, as a hero. 17% felt that Vladimir Lenin should be venerated; 16% felt that way about Mao Zedong; 13% pointed to Josef Stalin and Kim Jong Un,” adds the report.
Millennials’ ignorance of socialism’s destructive past continues to be a danger, with many not taking the time to learn the basic history behind the ideology.
According to the Heritage Foundation, “Socialism has never succeeded anywhere, including the Marxism-Leninism of the Soviet Union, the National Socialism of Nazi Germany, the Maoism of Communist China, the Chavez-Maduro socialism of Venezuela. It has never come close anywhere to Marx’s ideal of a classless society.”

CAMPUS CHAOS: California to Allow Homeless Students to Sleep in CARS on Campus
California is poised to enact legislation in the coming days that would allow “homeless college students” to sleep in their cars on campus after hours; raising serious concerns from parents and residents over the security and safety in the area.
“With thousands of community college students in California either homeless or facing the threat of homelessness, the state assembly in Sacramento is considering a bill that would allow those students to legally sleep overnight in their vehicles at campus parking lots and structures,” reports Fox News.
“The new bill, which was sponsored by Democratic Assemblyman Marc Berman, would permit any student in good standing at their community college to use their school’s parking system as a place to sleep overnight,” adds the author.
“Unfortunately, this is all too common throughout California, with one in four community college students experiencing housing insecurity or homelessness,” said the author behind the bill.

CAMPUS CHAOS: Liberal Colleges Clampdown on 'Offensive' Halloween Costumes
As college students prepare to enjoy Halloween festivities throughout the country, liberal universities across the US are releasing new guidelines restricting costumes that some may find “offensive.”
The “Inclusion” policy released by Northern Arizona University warns students of the dangers of “cultural appropriation,” telling them to avoid dressing as caricatures of a “culture that is not one’s own.”
“Cultural appropriation means adopting a cultural product in terms of local meanings and practices. In its broadest sense the term means taking an existing cultural form from one social group and replaying it in another with different meanings or practices,” said the school’s website.
The University of St. Thomas also released policies regarding “acceptable student costumes” in an article titled, “Costume or Cultural Appropriation?”
“The leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping, and Halloween is just around the corner. Many would argue that Halloween is the day of the year where you can be whoever, or whatever you want. However, it’s important to know the distinction between what is funny and what is cultural appropriation,” writes the author.
“Does my costume represent a culture that is not my own?” it urges students to ask before leaving their dormitories.
