Just been listening to AronRa's take on the SCOTUS decision on Roe v Wade and he believes that this is just the beginning of what they are going for, Gay Marriage is the First

That all sounds good, but it doesn't seem to help things now.

I saw this from Pew
https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2022/january/the-nones-are-on-the-r...

Religious "nones" currently account for about 3-in-10 U.S. adults or 29%. That number is up to 10-percent in the last 10 years. Smith says those secularizing shifts show no signs of changing or slowing down. 

"One thing about this trend is that it's very broad-based," says Smith. "Religious 'nones' are growing among men and women – they're growing among college graduates and those with less education. They're growing in every region of the country. As older Americans age and as they begin to pass away, they are being replaced by a new generation of young adults that's coming of age with far lower levels attachments of religion than their parents and grandparents before them. So that's a big key part of what's happening."

Boris Johnson was warned of Lebedev security concerns, says Cummings

Dominic Cummings has said he was present when Boris Johnson was told of security concerns about his plan to award a peerage to Evgeny Lebedev.

The ex-adviser said he was "in the room" when the PM was told intelligence officials had "serious reservations" about giving the honour to the Russian-born businessman.

It follows reports the security services changed their advice after Mr Johnson intervened.

The PM has previously denied this.

Lord Lebedev, who owns the Evening Standard newspaper, has denied posing a "security risk" to the UK. 

Last week, the Sunday Times reported that in March 2020, the House of Lords Appointments Commission - which vets peerage appointments - advised Mr Johnson against granting Mr Lebedev a seat in the House of Lords on security grounds.

The newspaper said the assessment was withdrawn after Mr Johnson - a long-time friend of Lord Lebedev - personally intervened.

Boris Johnson was warned of Lebedev security concerns, says Cumming...
