A report in The Guardian, United Kingdom, talks about how, in America, atheism is on the rise and is putting the "evangelical religious right" on the defensive.
They state that there is a steady growth in secularism which is being carried over by groups such as the one that met in Hartford, Connecticut, to promote the end of religion and a vision of a secular future for America.
The report states: "Professor Barry Kosmin of Trinity College, who conducts the national Religious Identification Survey, believes up to a quarter of young people in the US now have no specific faith, and scoffs at the idea, prevalent in so much US media and culture, that the country is highly religious or becoming more so. "The trending in American history is towards secularisation," Kosmin said."
Considering the fact, according to the late activist and "whistleblower" Steve Cokely and other available documentation, that there are more than one billion people who are in the Christian religion and more than a billion in the Islamic religion, it isn't hard to understand.
Cokely states, "Isn't it funny that with all of these 'religionists' around the world, to the tune of billions, evil still continues to prevail and proliferate around the world." And that's not to mention the many who ascribe to other religions which have fewer people, but still number in the millions.
And yet evil prevails, in spite of all of this "religiosity" and people who say they are Christians or Muslims or other faiths such as Judaism and Buddhism and Hinduism and Catholicism, et al; yet they do not do that which faith requires them to do.
The majority of "commandment breaking," which is done by those who claim to be of the various faiths, leaves no room to wonder why so many people are turning against these purported religions in record numbers.
It's hard to say that God is hanging His head in shame that people of faith have brought such ill repute in His Name, but there it is.
They say that politicians have yet to catch up with the changing demographic; but they eventually will. Doesn't look like they're going to have much of a choice considering that their actions almost never match that which they say they believe.
Taking the times into consideration, and the religious right's hijacking of the conversation about God and the Bible ever since former president American secularism is not only a prophetic utterance that the Bible says is coming regardless, but is long overdue.tried to make everyone think he was a "Christian," maybe
