    If a Conservative starts a thread and liberals complain about it, it gets immediately moved to "Conspiracy Theories."

    Is that what you are saying?
    No.

    And you should know better than anyone here how staff operates.

    So should you, but I ain't going there. ;-)

    Meanwhile, back at the thread, not sure this thread means what the OP thinks that it means.

    From what I gathered, less people go to church (awesome) and less people are affiliated with an actual established religion. That is not in itself exclusive of believing in god.

    That is my take on it as well. We remain a Christian nation. We just don't necessarily go to church on a regular basis. But a very high percentage of Americans state that they are Christians.

    Sure, isn't that what they feed off of. They need a religion to hate, so they feel justified in their actions

    Old people, sure. You're missing the point of the study. It is among the young people that religion is becoming irrelevant. Theism is an aging belief system, and, as those old people die of...well...old age, they are not being replaced by a younger generation. Which means, that, as those young people becoe of majority age, Christianity will lose what little is left of its stranglehold on our government, and culture.

    I'm sure you want to believe that. However, the truth is that young people just don't care about religion. They no longer need myths to tell them why the sun rises, and where babies come from. As science, reason, and logic replace myths, fairy tales, and superstitions religion is slowly, but surely dying out.

    Its weird, around here fewer "kids" go to church as they were rocked by scandals (heavily Catholic area) and are seen as problematic. Yet many still say they have faith.
