The State of Atheism in America… from a Christian Perspective

The Barna Group is a research organization that focuses on questions of interest to the Christian world, and they just released a survey they did on people who haven’t gone to church in the past six months. They called them the “unchurched,” though we usually refer to them as the “Nones.” Most of them aren’t atheists, but they still want nothing to do with organized religion.

Lehigh (PA) Officials Say Giant Christian Cross at Center of County Seal Has Nothing to Do with Religion

Last month, officials in Lehigh County (Pennsylvania) discussed what to do about their seal:
