Fox News guest: Millennials ’embrace godlessness’ because they ‘only want what makes them happy’

During an appearance in Fox & Friends this Tuesday morning, podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey lamented a new poll that found more and more young Americans are abandoning religion and caring less about having children and expressing patriotism.

“We are a generation that is obsessed with self-love, with self-care, with self-fulfillment and sacrifice is seen as totally uncool and selfishness is seen as completely trendy,” Stuckey told the Fox News show’s hosts.

According to Stuckey, young people are drifting away from traditional values such as religion because it’s “bigger than us.”

“We are a generation that is obsessed with self-love, with self-care, with self-fulfillment, and sacrifice is seen as totally uncool and selfishness is seen as completely trendy,” Stuckey said. “So anything that is bigger than us — that includes God or having kids or patriotism — we don’t want anything to do with it. We only want to do what makes us happy, and the reason why that makes me sad is because young people are missing out on some of the greatest sources of joy. Anything that gives you satisfaction requires sacrifice or a relationship with God, having kids, being a part of something that’s bigger than you, like the greatest country on Earth. It’s really disappointing for me to see, but like I said, not surprising.”
