Hip-hop is once again in the cross hairs of Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, as he is now blaming the rap industry for the decline in Christianity, particularly with youths. While the number of Christians has decreased steadily since 2007, according to a study by Pew Research, there is no statistical correlation between rap music and that decline like O'Reilly is claiming.
"The rap industry, for example, often glorifies depraved behavior. That sinks into the minds of some young people - the group that is most likely to reject religion," O'Reilly said. As a reminder, this is not even close to O'Reilly's first battle with the rap industry in his career, and we can almost guarantee that it won't be the last.
