Social & Moral Concerns

Ad Feedback

Evangelical conservatives fought throughout 2010 against what they saw as threats to America's social and moral makeup.

President Barack Obama's health care reform law renewed deep concerns about government-funded abortions. The battle against legalizing same-sex marriage in California and other states is still underway. And the recent repeal of the 17-year-old "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy has drawn into question the future of military chaplains.

Socially, the struggling U.S. economy also led to a sharp rise among Americans seeking assistance with basic needs. The number of people lined up for help from soup kitchens and food banks rose by more than 1 million, putting a strain on charities and non-profits during a time when donations were already low.

Meanwhile, CBN News also highlighted the growing sex-trade industry in America's heartland, the benefits and challenges of adoption, and ministries working to divorce-proof their communities.
