Well done Britland. Grauniad article on waning belief.
Guardian article. from 12/02/2015 (or 02/12/2015 for the Murikans, or 2015/02/12 for the Chinese etc.)

Extract:
Quote:A lack of religion is a common feature of advanced societies, and a new poll is the latest in a long line that show a marked decline in religiosity, particularly among young people...
... in recent polling just 16% of Anglicans and Methodists said they had “no doubts” about the existence of God. Indeed, the archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, admitted that he had his own doubts about the Lord and Father of Mankind, before quickly adding that this was “probably not what the archbishop of Canterbury should say”. ...

The article refers to a new YouGov/Times opinion poll

We're winning.

My understanding is we're winning in the developed world, but we're losing globally. Particularly, we're losing in undeveloped countries.

Then we need more missionaries.

Do you want to volunteer?

I'll take south east Asia and you can have a crack at Syria. What say you?

The ArchBishop of Canterbury is alive? Well that's a miracle and worthy of joining that 16% right away. I'm pretty sure he was hacked to death a thousand years ago.

RE: Well done Britland. Grauniad article on waning belief.
Isn't the British Gov. pandering to the muslims though? Across the pond here from where I am, I seem to only hear of concessions given to immigrant Muslims who want to practice Sharia in England. Is that true?

My missionary work on Facebook was bad enough. I doubt the theists in Syria will be more receptive.

I doubt that the immigrants of any stripe are given concessions. Don't forget that it's still the land of the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail.

Concessions for 3rd / 4th generation British muslims ... probably ... because they are elected council members by then.

That's memetic evolution for ya.
