It’s declining in the United States too…just not as swiftly as across the pond.
The number of Britons who are religious has declined significantly in the last 30 years and the number of adherents to the established Church of England has halved, a survey revealed on Tuesday.
Just 52 percent of people said they belong to a religion, down from 68 percent in 1983, according to the latest British Social Attitudes survey, which has been conducted every year for the last three decades.
I think it’s the exposure to Richard Dawkins. Maybe if we bat our eyelashes we could get him to spend more time here in the States…
People are starting to catch wise, and there’s only so much indoctrination and social pressure can do (especially since the faithful lose the power of social pressure as their numbers shrink).
