The takeaway here is that most attempts to compromise Christianity with modern, secular progressive ideals has resulted in declining membership, attendance and involvement. I won’t say in every case, but the majority of Protestant traditions that attempted the compromise have seen plummeting memberships. I was friends with a UCC pastor who admitted (this being around 2005) that the UCC likely wouldn’t exist in another generation. Whether they are worried about such things or not, I don’t know.
