RE: America is no longer a Christian country
It rather annoys me when people say it's a "Christian Nation", I usually reply," in about 10 years the majority will be Muslims and Atheists but would it be their nation too, dipshit? "
No, it was never a <religion here> nation, and it never will be. It will be a secular one, with maybe a majority of religious people.

Well, that is a hit sitcom right there.

Not my majority. Wink

Despite a high level of religious adherence, only 9% of Americans in a 2008 poll said religion was the most important thing in their life, compared with 45% who said family was paramount in their life and 17% who said money and career was paramount. Mark Chaves, a Duke University professor of sociology, religion and divinity, found that 92% of Americans believed in God in 2008 but that they have significantly less confidence in their religious leaders than they did a generation ago. Polls have also shown that doubts about the existence of a god have grown rapidly among younger Americans.

What is the definition of a Christian country? Mine is a country that has a majority of citizens who believe in and publicly profess the Nicene or Apostles Creed, as these creeds have come down to us from the Ancient Church – people who at least attempt to live according to the Ten Commandments. "

Quote:The United States will either become predominantly Catholic in numbers, faith, and morals or perish under the weight of its unbridled hedonism and corruption.
Quote:The primary reason is the lack of dogmatic authority in Protestantism and the reliance on the principle of private judgment.

RE: America is no longer a Christian country
I just thought this was good news - the believers recognize they're osing their followers.
