      to the children. The Right is losing them in droves. See, for example, The Incredible Shrinking Church, by Frank Page. He was previously President of the Southern Baptist Convention.

      The children don't make the news, but they show up in the polls, especially at Pew. Also there is an Evangelical polling company, Barna Group, which reports that 38% of Christian Millennials fact-check sermons on their smart phones.

          They just don't make the news when they do it. Think of any four-year-old asking, "Why, Daddy?" There are parents who encourage this behavior, mostly raising children at least partly in the evidence-based world, and those who follow the Ring Lardner prescription:

          "Shut up," he explained.
          or the Mob version
          When I want to hear your opinion, I'll tell it to you.
          who raise children mostly in the bubble.

          But now any child who has access to a computer or smart phone can ask the Internet anything. That is the premise of the One Laptop Per Child project, which proposed to build computers for about a billion children at a time, if governments understood the value of this investment. Hardly any do.
