Ohio Poll Finds Poor Economy and Lack of Full Time Jobs Devastate Young Adults

85 percent of Buckeye State Millennials say the poor economy forces changes in daily life, 79 percent say key life and career decisions severely compromised
Only 33 percent of Ohio's 18-29 year olds say elected leaders represent their interests and fully 81 percent intend to vote in the 2012 presidential election
WASHINGTON, Sept. 24, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Generation Opportunity, the largest non-profit, non-partisan organization in the United States engaging and mobilizing young Americans (Millennials ages 18-29 years old) on the important economic issues facing the nation, released new polling data today on Ohio young adults as the 2012 presidential election nears. Since its launch in June of 2011, Generation Opportunity has amassed a following of over four million on Facebook and is actively organizing Millennials across America through grassroots tactics, voter registration, and voter turnout efforts. Generation Opportunity has already engaged well over one hundred and thirty thousand Ohio young adults through its social media and field operations.
"Young adults in Ohio are paying a very steep personal price for the poor economy and economic policies coming out of the White House that are crushing the creation of full-time, meaningful jobs under the weight of higher taxes and ever-expanding regulations. Every day, across Ohio, young people are forced to cut back on basic purchases such as groceries and gifts for family members, to change living conditions and move back in with their parents, to find extra work and even sell their personal possessions. Their dreams of buying homes, going back to school, starting families, paying off student loans, getting married, and advancing their careers have been absolutely devastated. They know they are getting a raw deal and are intensely frustrated with elected leaders who once promised change, but have instead created a status quo that is even more bleak and limits the prospect of independence while pushing greater dependency," said Paul T. Conway, president of Generation Opportunity and former Chief of Staff of the U.S. Department of Labor. "Our survey confirmed what we have heard on the ground and online for well over a year - if candidates want to earn the respect and votes of young people in Ohio, they need to offer detailed solutions that allow employers the ability to create full-time jobs that lead to improved lives and better futures. However, if elected leaders come to Ohio and stubbornly defend policies that have already proven to be a failure and harmful to young Americans, this generation will not hesitate to make their voices heard in November and demand change. They know America can do better, and they have the confidence to act."
For Generation Opportunity, the polling company, inc./WomanTrend, conducted a statewide online survey of 507 Ohio adults ages 18-29 between July 27 and August 14, 2012.
Randomly selected online opt-in panel participants were sent an invitation to the survey via email which included a secure link to the online questionnaire. Quotas were used to ensure the survey was representative of the larger 18-29 year old statewide population with regard to race, region, and gender. The data were NOT weighted. The overall sampling margin of error for the survey is ±4.4% at a 95% confidence interval, meaning that the data obtained would not differ more than 4.4 percentage points in 95 out of 100 similar samples obtained.
  • 85% of Ohio’s 18-29 year olds changed some aspect of their day-to-day lives because of the current state of the economy (Accepted multiple responses) (Randomized):

  • 73% believe that the lack of job opportunities is shrinking the American middle class.
  • 64% of Ohio Millennials believe the availability of more quality, full-time jobs upon graduation is more important than lower student loan interest rates.
  • 81% of 18-29 year olds in Ohio plan to vote in the election for President this year.
Generation Opportunity’s social media operations and grassroots organizers and volunteers have already engaged well over a hundred and thirty thousand young people online and at various events across Ohio over the course of the past year. They have trained student leaders on college campuses; co-sponsored trade shows, industry and manufacturing summits; participated in street fairs and local festivals; and attended happy hours for young professionals.
Field activities over the past year include the Ohio State Fair; the Fountain Square Summer Music Series in Cincinnati; the Ohio Growth Summit in Columbus; Buck-I-Frenzy at Ohio State University; Constitution Day in Cedarville; local Chamber of Commerce events throughout Cincinnati, Dayton, Dublin, Toledo, and Westerville; NCAA and NFL football games; a charity mud volleyball tournament in Dayton; and local community festivals in New Straitsville and Avon. Generation Opportunity is a member of the Chambers of Commerce in Akron, Columbus, and Dayton.
In recent months, Generation Opportunity field teams also have met with young adults at college and schools throughout the state, signing up volunteers and further expanding its growing statewide network of grassroots activists and volunteers.  Generation Opportunity organizers have visited and recruited new volunteer team member at The Ohio State University, Ashland University, Bowling Green State University, Oberlin College, Otterbein University, Cedarville University, Rhodes State Community College, Ohio Wesleyan University, Ohio University, Miami University, Ohio State – Lima, and Wright State University.  The organization has dozens more events planned and is providing assistance to events their volunteers are conducting within their own communities and extensive social media networks.
Generation Opportunity is a non-profit, non-partisan 501 (c)(4) organization that seeks to engage everyone from young adults, to early career professionals, college students, young mothers and fathers, construction workers, current service men and women, veterans, entrepreneurs, and all Americans who find themselves dissatisfied with the status quo and willing to create a better tomorrow.
Generation Opportunity operates on a strategy that combines advanced social media tactics with proven field tactics to reach Americans 18-29. The organization’s social media platforms – “Being American by GO,” “The Constitution by GO,” “Gas Prices Are Too Damn High,” “Lower Taxes by GO,” “Keep Texas Awesome,” “Jersey Proud,” and “We Like Small Government” on Facebook – have amassed a total fan base of more than 4 million. The pages post links to relevant articles and reports from sources ranging from the federal Government Accountability Office (GAO), to The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Brookings Institution, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and The Heritage Foundation.

  • More threats against Christians in Egypt

    Egypt (MNN) ― A report Friday indicated Egyptian Christians in border towns are getting threats of violence if they don't leave. One church leader suspects the threats are connected to the anti-Islam film which has angered Muslims throughout the Middle East.
    In other parts of the country, the pressure has increased to the point where people are fleeing in droves. They represent an increasing number of the country's 8 million Coptic Christians were already feeling increasingly cornered.
    The atmosphere chilled quickly in the wake of Hosni Mubarak's ouster and the Muslim Brotherhood's meteoric rise to power. Already subjected to anti-Christian discrimination and attacks for years under Mubarak, his fall meant no one was there to suppress the hard-liner Islamists.
    The nation's Christians saw an uptick in violence against them alongside an overall rise in crime since Egypt's 2011 revolution. There are heightened concerns now that believers might face backlash amid outrage over the film, says Rody Rodeheaver with IN Network.
    It's not something that dies down quickly. "Each subsequent conversation about that continues to elevate the emotional level in countries like Egypt and others." As a result, Rodeheaver says their team is very concerned about exodus of believers.
    There's also the danger of the mass hysteria driving a rumor mill that comes back on the believers. For example, one of the rumors on the street is that there were six Egyptian Christians that participated in the making of the video. "There is no way of knowing whether that is true or false, but that is the word on the street, according to our staff. What that then does is just escalates the emotional extreme reaction to this whole situation."


    Why Are We Surprised With the Push for 'Pedophile Rights'?

    Last year, many Americans were shocked by reports about a pro-pedophilia conference in Baltimore, in which psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, representing institutions like Harvard and Johns Hopkins, sought to present pedophilia in a sympathetic and even positive light. Now, a sympathetic article on the struggles of pedophiles is also causing shock waves. But why should we be surprised?
    Academic articles in scholarly journals have been presenting pedophilia in an empathetic light for years, and, as Matthew Cullinan Hoffman noted, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) released a report in 1998, “claiming that the ‘negative potential’ of adult sex with children was ‘overstated’ and that ‘the vast majority of both men and women reported no negative sexual effects from their child sexual abuse experiences.’ It even claimed that large numbers of the victims reported that their experiences were ‘positive,’ and suggested that the phrase ‘child sex abuse’ be replaced with ‘adult-child sex.’” Others have coined the more disgusting term “intergenerational intimacy.”
    The APA’s report was so disturbing that it drew an official rebuke from Congress, yet the pro-pedophile (or, pro-pederast) push continues. In fact, some psychiatric leaders, like Dr. Richard Green, who were instrumental in removing homosexuality from the APA’s list of mental disorders in 1973, have been fighting to remove pedophilia as well.
    Consider, for example, this statement from the late John Hopkins professor John Money: “Pedophilia and ephebophilia [referring to sexual attraction felt by an adult toward an adolescent] are no more a matter of voluntary choice than are left-handedness or color blindness. There is no known method of treatment by which they may be effectively and permanently altered, suppressed, or replaced. Punishment is useless. There is no satisfactory hypothesis, evolutionary or otherwise, as to why they exist in nature’s overall scheme of things. One must simply accept the fact that they do exist, and then, with optimum enlightenment, formulate a policy of what to do about it.”
    Now, go back and reread that paragraph, substituting the word “homosexuality” for “pedophilia” and “ephebophilia.” How interesting!
    To help flesh this out, let’s picture a homosexual man making his case to a heterosexual man:
    1. My homosexuality is not a sexual preference but a sexual orientation, just as much as your heterosexuality is not a sexual preference but a sexual orientation.
    2. My homosexuality is just as normal as your heterosexuality.
    3. Since my behavior is genetically determined and is not a choice, it is intolerant and hateful to suggest that it is wrong. And to call my sexual behavior illegal or immoral, or to refuse to legitimize same-sex relationships, is to be a moral bigot of the highest order.
    4. I deeply resent your attempts to identify areas of my upbringing and environment as alleged causes for my homosexuality.
    5. I categorically reject the myth that someone can change his or her sexual orientation. Rather, such statements only add to the anguish and suffering of gays and lesbians, and attempts to change us often lead to catastrophic consequences, including depression and suicide.

    As troops & their chaplains return, churches must be ready

    ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP) -- They're coming home. They've witnessed death on the battlefield and led soldiers, sailors and marines to Christ. They've baptized converts in water-filled barrels and led worship during rocket attacks. They've risked their own lives and sacrificed time away from their families. They are the among the nation's unsung heroes -- military chaplains.

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has reported that 33,000 troops involved in the Afghan "surge" have been withdrawn, leaving another 68,000 U.S. troops and their chaplains still scheduled to serve in Afghanistan until December 2014.

    The last 100,000 troops in Iraq returned home last December. Since 9/11, a total of 2.4 million American military service members -- including National Guard and Reservists -- have cycled through the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard -- some more than once.

    "Our troops have been touched and changed forever by the life-and-death issues of war," said retired Army Chief of Chaplains (Maj. Gen.) Douglas Carver, now executive director for chaplaincy at the North American Mission Board. "They've seen things people shouldn't have to see. They're coming back home now, many of them bearing the burden of painful stories and bad memories. As veterans of war, our troops have forged lifelong relationships with their fellow service members. They're forever linked to a unique band of brothers and sisters -- bonded together in blood, sweat and tears."

    Their transition back to the "normalcy" of civilian life will be hard.


    Pastor sues over ‘no preaching after dark’ law on Bourbon Street in New Orleans

    NEW ORLEANS — A street preacher sued on Thursday to block a city ordinance that restricts religious or political speech on Bourbon Street after dark.

    In his federal lawsuit, New Orleans pastor Paul Gros claimed the city’s “aggressive solicitation” ordinance sets unconstitutional limits on free speech.

    Gros said he was preaching on Bourbon Street with his wife, another pastor and a friend on the night of May 15 when police ordered him to stop.

    “They told him if he didn’t stop he would be arrested,” said one of his attorneys, Nate Kellum.
    Gros left without being arrested. Less than a month ago, however, police arrested several preachers on Bourbon Street during the Southern Decadence gay pride festival.

    The city council adopted the ordinance in October 2011. A violation is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $500 fine.

    The measure makes it a crime for anyone to “loiter or congregate on Bourbon Street for the purpose of disseminating any social, political or religious message between the hours of sunset and sunrise.”


    Christian Music’s Moment: How TobyMac and Lecrae Conquered the Countdown

    For the first time in 15 years, a Christian album is No. 1. TIME examines how Christian music hit the mainstream and why it's here to stay

    There’s a whole lot of Jesus running through Americans’ earbuds, at least according to the latest Billboard and iTunes numbers. In back-to-back weeks Christian artists TobyMac and Lecrae released new albums that made even mainstream artists listen up as they both stormed up the charts.
    Earlier this month TobyMac jumped to the top of the Billboard Top 200 chart with Eye On It, the first Christian album to reach the No. 1 spot since Bob Carlisle’s Adult Contemporary hit Butterfly Kisses 15 years ago. But TobyMac isn’t exactly AC. His blend of rock/pop/hip-hop—“schizophrenic pop” he jokes to TIME—is a new sound to reach such levels of success: an overtly Christian artist who sings, talks and raps about Jesus.

    And if you want to hear something else as different from Christian AC as you can get, then take Lecrae, a hip-hop artist debuting at No. 3 on this week’s Billboard Top 200 chart with Gravity. He has already claimed the top overall spot on iTunes, including concurrently owning the first, second and seventh slots on iTunes’ hip-hop chart for the deluxe and regular versions of Gravity and his album Church Clothes. Just like TobyMac, whom he collaborated with on Eye On It, there’s no sidestepping what drives him: Lecrae tells TIME he wants his album to “change the way people see the world and let my faith bleed out in my music.”

    Not just a good church, but a good neighbor

    Most people picture retirement as a relaxing time, but for Darlene it turned out to be a time of financial insecurity.

    “The checks don’t go up like the cost of living,” she says.

    She and her husband tried to supplement their income, but they still found themselves struggling. Darlene (who didn’t want to share her last name), also helps support her granddaughter-in-law and three great-granddaughters, two of whom have special needs. She knew she needed help.
    For two years, she and others have found it at Central Assembly of God’s Community Engagement Day, which is the second Saturday of every month.

    “They don’t treat you like you’re a nobody,” she says. “Some churches make you go a service to get help, and they just treat you like a number.” At Central, though, she says that’s never the case. “To me it’s just a great place where you can be treated like a human being should be treated.”


    Abortion Clinic in Brooklyn to Stop Abortions After 22 Years

    A Brooklyn, New York-based abortion center will stop doing abortions after 22 years and will reopen as a legitimate medical center offering help to patients rather than death to unborn children.
    Msgr. Philip Reilly and the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, a local pro-life group, have stopped praying outside the Brooklyn Ambulatory Surgery Center in Sunset Park. For the past 22 years, the priest and his devoted pro-life friends have been seeking an end to abortion at the Brooklyn location.  Their prayers have been heard as the new owners of the building have said abortions will no longer take place when it reopens as the New York Center for Specialty Surgery.

    The new owners have gone as far as inviting Msgr. Reilly and Father Kevin Sweeney, pastor of nearby St. Michael’s Church, to bless the new facility — which they will do on September 29.
    The Brooklyn Tablet has more on the closing of the Brooklyn Ambulatory Surgery Center abortion facility.

    “It’s like a miracle!” says Father Sweeney, who has been praying with the Helpers since he was a seminarian. He announced the news to his congregation at a Sunday Mass to thunderous applause. Parishioners from St. Michael’s have been among the steady, dedicated volunteers who have been standing outside the building at Third Ave. and 43rd St., praying and offering alternatives to distressed mothers and fathers.

    “This was the oldest and largest abortion clinic in New York City and for many years, in the United States,” said Msgr. Reilly. “I believe more than a quarter of a million unborn children lost their lives there.”

    Reuters) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday Israel has no roots in the Middle East and would be "eliminated," ignoring a U.N. warning to avoid incendiary rhetoric ahead of the annual General Assembly session.
    Ahmadinejad also said he did not take seriously the threat that Israel could launch a military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, denied sending arms to Syria, and alluded to Iran's threats to the life of British author Salman Rushdie.
    The United States quickly dismissed the Iranian president's comments as "disgusting, offensive and outrageous."
    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hinted Israel could strike Iran's nuclear sites and criticized U.S. President Barack Obama's position that sanctions and diplomacy should be given more time to stop Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
    Iran denies it is seeking nuclear arms and says its atomic work is peaceful and aimed at generating electricity.
    "Fundamentally we do not take seriously the threats of the Zionists," Ahmadinejad, in New York for this week's U.N. General Assembly, told reporters. "We have all the defensive means at our disposal and we are ready to defend ourselves."
