Fourteen per cent of US Christians left their churches after Trump's election, new research finds

Some 14 per cent of Christians abandoned their churches after the election of Donald Trump, according to research by The Washington Post showing that a number of people who went to a church in September last year had left it by mid-November.

The Post surveyed 957 people before and after the 2016 presidential election, in late September and mid-November. Of those who said they had attended a house of worship in September, 14 percent reported that they had left that particular church by mid-November.

Trump secured the support of 81 per cent of white evangelicals in the 2016 election.

But after that election, 'leavers' were distributed across the religious population, and included 10 per cent of evangelicals, 18 per cent of mainline Protestants, and 11 per cent of Catholics, according to the survey.

Around 15 per cent of those who believe that American politics has become divisive left their political houses of worship. Of those who don't think politics is inherently divisive, close to none left their political house of worship, the Post reported.

Trump appears currently to be suffering from relatively low support among evangelicals, according to the research.

'In the same survey, we asked evangelicals first to tell us their own level of support for Trump, and second to estimate their clergyperson's support of Trump,' the Post reported. 'Among this group, Trump's average feeling thermometer rating — which ranges from 0 to 100 — was just over 48. While that's low, Hillary Clinton's average was only 25. On average, they felt their clergy liked him only slightly better, averaging 50 on the same 100-point scale.'

The report speculated on why people are leaving their churches. 'On the one hand, if people are leaving houses of worship because of political disagreements, they may not be learning the skills needed to talk across differences and participate in politics.

'On the other hand, as congregations become more engaged with politics, worshipers learn to connect their values with their political options. And the members most likely to leave over political disagreements tend to be marginal, infrequent attendees anyway.

'People leaving their houses of worship over political disagreements is natural and to be expected. It's certainly happened frequently, sometimes explosively, over the history of religion.'

Trump Pick For Army Secretary Says He Opposes Transgender Equality Because He Must ‘Crush Evil’

He has also said he believes being transgender is a disease.

Tennessee state Sen. Mark Green (R), President Donald Trump’s choice to be the next Army secretary, believes that part of his mission as a public official is to “crush evil” ― and that opposing transgender equality policies is key to that effort.

As head of the Army, Green would oversee a force that’s fully integrated, since the Pentagon ended its ban on transgender people serving openly in June. If confirmed, he would set a significantly different tone than the previous Army secretary, Eric Fanning, who was the first openly gay person to serve in the position.

Donald Trump has 'dangerous mental illness', say psychiatry experts at Yale conference

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists have warned during a conference at Yale University.

Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country.

Speaking at the conference at Yale’s School of Medicine on Thursday, one of the mental health professionals, Dr John Gartner, a practising psychotherapist who advised psychiatric residents at Johns Hopkins University Medical School, said: “We have an ethical responsibility to warn the public about Donald Trump's dangerous mental illness.”

Center for Inquiry Michigan sponsoring March for Science on Saturday

Why a march?

A recent focus on science and how scientific findings impact public policy has put a spotlight on the scientific community and their research. We accept that science, as a field of knowledge and way of thinking, is not swayed by politics or opinions; it is nonpartisan and all-inclusive. This is the time for us to come together as one community, take a stand, and lead a new conversation.

The March for Science works to encourage evidence-based thinking when forming public policies. The march will be held in Lansing.

Center for Inquiry (CFI) Michigan, a local secular community group, is officially sponsoring the March for Science in Lansing on Saturday, April 22nd. Jennifer Beahan, CFI Michigan Program Director, will be a featured speaker at the Lansing March, and CFI members will be attending the march in Lansing, as well as several satellite marches throughout the state.
