More Americans Say That You Can Be Good Without God?

Reader for the first time, a majority of Americans — 56 percent — say it is possible to be a good person without a religious belief. So says new Pew Research Center data drawn from two polls conducted among about 5,000 American adults in June and July. “God is not a prerequisite for good values and morality,” Greg Smith, Pew’s associate director of research, said in a post about the findings. ” … [T]he public’s increased rejection of the idea that belief in God is necessary for morality is due, in large part, to the spike in the share of Americans who are religious ‘nones.

Lord Have Mercy, Pastor Alleges He Lost Job Over Conservative Religious Beliefs.


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting, Dr. Eric Wash a Seventh Day Adventist Preacher, is saying the Public Health, Department of Georgia  has rescinded a job offer once it learned of his religious beliefs. According to Walsh, the health department offered him a job as a director of a North Georgia region, sending him a welcoming letter and all, then took the offer back. All because of recorded sermons online in which he said homosexuality is a sin and evolution is a “religion created by Satan.” Walsh has now filed a complaint Tuesday with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Atlanta.

In this day and age, keeping extremist views to yourself is best. Employers can easily use social media forums and platforms to determine the character of a job candidate.  From my understanding, the position that he would have served in demands that it should be someone who could make decisions that could be acceptable to a wide range of the public.

  1. why should you have to keep your views to yourself or hide them? If he's a preacher of The Gospel, he has an obligation to preach the Word of God regardless of the opinions of man... He has a good lawsuit... this is discrimination...

  2. Rev, I stand by my comment. This is not about his preaching, he has a biased against a certain group of people. Since a public health official is likely to encounter those people who require service, it seems like his deeply held opinions on those people could negatively affect their treatment. Simply a vetting process. You can believe anything you want. HOWEVER, if your beliefs are in direct opposition to the thoughts of a potential employer, they do not have to and will not hire you. In my opinion, he was not right for the job.

  3. In your opinion, believing and preaching the bible is an extremist view, sis Brock?

  4. He can have his beliefs and even preach them, but it doesn't mean there won't be any consequences. Freedom of speech does not equal freedom from consequences.
