Lets do the math here..

78%(old percent) - 71%(new percentage) = 7% Change

In that time Population increased 8%.

1% difference.


What I conclude from these numbers is...

Babies aren't born Christian.

We wouldn't have won ww2 without the faith this nation had in who we were.
Today religion divides us, race divides us, politics divides us, money divides us. We are a broken culture, that has no glue that holds us together.


yes...what ever will we do without iron age myths dictating our morality!?

But, but......
That's what our country was based on and what formed us. If we move away from that, it will be our downfall.

No, giving women the right to vote was the beginning of the end

I mean who in their right mind came up with that one

Maybe you should read about Rome.

Mock all you wish. It only proves your views are narrow, and you can't think on the scale needed to understand the world outside your bubble.
The problem is not there are less Christians, the problem is the false narrative used to marginalize Christians.

Guess what group of Americans that 88%of them consider themselves religious affiliated in some form.

The US military. That's practically 9 out of 10.

Re: Study: U.S. Becoming Less Christian

I'll keep my personal beliefs to myself but I noticed this without having to read a "study". Just look at Christmas time, damn near everyone is forced to say "Happy Holidays" so they don't offend certain people.

When I was a kid, almost every house in the country was covered in X-Mas lights. Now days almost every house is blank.

Oh really, do you really want to start talking about the military considering your track record?
