The End of Christian America

The End of Christian America is the title of this Newsweek article.

The percentage of self-identified Christians has fallen 10 points in the past two decades. How that statistic explains who we are now—and what, as a nation, we are about to become.

Thanks to "Ace".

Oh dear, another load of the usual fundamentalist evangelical tosh. Amerixa is going to hell in a handcart, and of course it's someone else's fault: "Once Christianity is abandoned by a significant portion of the population, the moral landscape necessarily changes. For the better part of the 20th century, the nations of Western Europe led the way in the abandonment of Christian commitments. Christian moral reflexes and moral principles gave way to the loosening grip of a Christian memory. Now even that Christian memory is absent from the lives of millions."

The end of Christian America? I only wish it was. What a load of sanctimonious bigots these folk are.

Cor, what an aggravating article to read!!!

"Christians are now making up a declining percentage of the American population." - What, when only 15% are non-religious? Anyway, what a great thing that is; I am beginning to find religion actually incredibly immoral.

Totally agree with anticant!!!
