Three Factors.

1.  Work - which is secular and pragmatic.

2.  Popular Culture - which is hedonistic and anti-religious.

3.  Heredity - which is idealistic.

Young people have pressure from employers directly through work and indirectly through the media (news and sport).

They also have pressure from Satanism in the popular culture directly through their headphones and indirectly through peer pressure.

Thirdly they have an inherited idealism, which has come down to them from the hippies and baby boomers, which makes the spiritual political.

Notions of God and spirituality are vague and confused.

Most are anti-religious.
This is the fashion.

So they are at once religious and anti-religious.

Sometimes, as happens with repressed energies, this comes out in a perverted form like a belief in magic.

This is re-enchantment gone wrong.

And fertile ground for Satanism.

Because popular Satanism works on the unconscious level you may find two contradictory beliefs existing at once.  For example a disbelief in God and a belief in Satan.  Or anti-religious beliefs and a belief in magic (which is based on the inverse of religious doctrines).

Our task is to bring what is in the unconscious up into the conscious mind so that it can be examined and resolved.  This is why I expose Satanists in the music and entertainment industries.  So that people can see them for what they are and decide for themselves.

This may mitigate some of the anti-religious feeling in society and allow spirituality to engage with the Emerging Church.
