The Demise of American Religiousness?

"Religious affiliation in the United States is at its lowest point since it began to be tracked in the 1930s, according to analysis of newly released survey data by researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, and Duke University. Last year, one in five Americans claimed they had no religious preference, more than double the number reported in 1990." http://eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2013-03/uoc--aar031213.php

Since there is a new Pope here is some info from Catholic data:

Catholic population:
1970 : 653.6 m
2010 : 1.1960 b

Conclusion:

The fascist rule of the Church against birth control in third world countries guaranties it growth.

If you are born into a Catholic family, you are Catholic and doomed to have lots of kids and raise them as Catholics.

God help us! LOL

The Dawkins Delusion God vs Atheism by Robert Slater
Amazon Kindle

This is book is written deliberately as a response to Richard Dawkins’ “The God Delusion”. You should read it first to better understand my undertaking; however the intention should be clear even to the na├»ve reader with no background in Atheism
