    U.S. Christian Population in Freefall
    12% Drop in 10 Years – Pew

    Christianity in the United States is declining at an unprecedented rate, a new study by the Pew Research Council revealed Thursday, and the percentage of Christians in the country has hit an all-time low.
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    The radicalization of evangelicals is having an effect. When Jerry Falwell Jr. endorses Trump as God's chosen, non-Christians draw conclusions.

      9/11 was the worst thing that could have happened for religion at large. Young adults grew up after the tragedy seeing radical religious fundamentalism for the hate mongering, violent, divisiveness it prides itself upon....and they're not having it. We're slowly growing out of its pathetic grasp (indoctrination) on society.

        I'm not sure why this is a big deal. The LORD will always keep a remnant alive and sometimes even hidden. The drop in "Christianity" is not surprising. For generations many people simply attended churches even if they didn't believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They attended simply because it was the cultural thing to do. They were more churchians than Christians. Now people can "come out" as atheists or homosexuals or pagans, etc without any real consequences. But this is the time for the Church body to shine even brighter. As the world continues into wickedness, sin, and darkness, when the world at large has embraced every kind of degeneracy there will come a time when it will collapse on itself many will look for answers out of sheer desperation. And we need to be ready to walk with them and point then to Jesus Christ with love, truth, and Spirit led authority.

          You're right. For a spiritual Christian, it's not a big deal. For a political Christian, it's a huge deal.

                  you seriously believe that young people are so foolish that they can't parse out which
                  religion was responsible for 911?

                        Religion per se matters not. It's the wholesale rejection of religious dogma in general...the division, prejudice and hate it inherently fosters. 9/11 was religion's crowning achievement; homosexuality, a parochial, close second.

                          Well, no, but he sure seemed to know which part of the forum he was in when posting on matters of politics and salient to such. Aren't you the guy who trolled about people having dementia on here?

                          Well this is fun isn't it?
