Are religiously active people happier than most?

A new study conducted by Pew Research Center shows that in some cases, religiously active people are happier and healthier than the alternative.

According to the study, “researchers divided survey-takers into three categories: the “actively religious,” who identify with a religion and attend a house of worship at least monthly; the “inactively religious,” who identify with a religion but attend less frequently; and the unaffiliated (or “nones”), who do not identify with any religion.”

In the survey – that was given to 26 countries world-wide – the study indicated five major findings, according to Pew Research.

  1. Actively religious people are more likely than their less-religious peers to describe themselves as “very happy”
  2. There is not a clear connection between religiosity and the likelihood that people will describe themselves as being in “very good” overall health
  3. The actively religious are generally less likely than the unaffiliated to smoke and drink.
  4. People who attend religious services at least monthly often are more likely than “nones” to join other types of (nonreligious) organizations, such as charities and clubs.
  5. The actively religious generally are more likely than others to vote.

The United States produced interesting comparable percentages in each of the categories. The US reported that 36% of the “actively religious” survey-takers were “very happy”, while a mere 25% of “inactive religious” individuals consider themselves to be very happy. Also, 58% of individuals that identified as actively religious were involve with other charitable organizations whereas 39% of ‘unaffiliated’ individuals were. Interestingly, it was reported that 69% of actively religious people indicated they were likely to vote in elections, compared to 48% of ‘unaffiliated’ individuals.

According to the data collected from Pew Research Center, it seems that individuals who identify as “actively religious” consider themselves to be happier in many areas of their life. One thing to note, the survey does not specify which religions are being studied. Using the term “religion” loosely, it can be assumed that the “religion” being looked at is the one most common to each of the 26 countries.

Will Other Rappers Follow Suit?

Soundcloud rapper Lil Pump endorsed President Donald Trump’s re-election bid on October 25, 2020.

The rapper alluded to Trump’s tax policies, which stand in sharp contrast to Joe Biden’s pro-tax hike agenda.

On Instagram, the rapper posted a photo-shopped image of himself and the president, with text saying “THE DAY I MET TRUMP #trump202022020.”

Lil Pump, whose government name is Gazzy Garcia, then released a video further detailing why he endorsed Trump, alluding to Trump’s tax plans. “All I gotta say is Trump 2020 b****” Lil Pump exclaimed. “F*** I look like paying a extra 33 is tax for Biden, b***** ass n—. F**** sleepy Joe n— Trump 2020 b****.”

Additionally, famed Queens rapper 50 Cent complained about Joe Biden’s tax policies, which is indicative of a growing sect of the rap community that is not exactly pleased with the prospects of a high tax environment under Biden.

That said, its remains to be seen if this trend crystallizes into a broader anti-tax movement in the rap space. Most rappers tend to promote culturally leftist narratives and don’t give alternative views on the Right much consideration. Like many other institutions, the rap space has seen a total takeover by the Left.

Curiously, Garcia held anti-Trump views on a previous occasion. Right after the 2016 presidential election, Lil Pump tweeted: “F*** DONALD TRUMP.”

There maybe a budding revolt against political elites. Culture matters and when it becomes clear that elites cannot even control the thoughts of cultural icons, all bets are off. Obviously, rappers should not be expected to serve as the vanguard of the America First movement. But such types of dissent should be encouraged at a time when nationalists need all the support they can get.

Once cultural barriers break down, a massive realignment is bound to happen, which is why elites want most cultural representatives to stay in line and repeat their talking points like mindless drones.
