As Protestants decline,
those with no religion gain

USA Today, by Cathy Lynn Grossman,

Original Article

Posted By:crabam, 10/9/2012 10:04:04 AM

For decades, if not centuries, America's top religious brand has been "Protestant." No more. In the 1960s, two in three Americans called themselves Protestant. Now the Protestant group -- both evangelical and mainline -- has slid below the statistical waters, down to 48%, from 53% in 2007. Where did they go? Nowhere, actually. They didn't switch to a new religious brand, they just let go of any faith affiliation or label.

That's what public school indoctrination does to a nation.

Isn't no religion the whole point of protestantism?

Indeed.

I am not religious. I have a relationship with the living God. I hate labels, but if I were to be pigeoned into a box, it would be Protestant.

Calling yourself something and walking it are two different things. I do not think there are any less followers of Jesus - I just think those who don't have a problem with saying they don't anymore has grown.

FTA "They didn't switch to a new religious brand, they just let go of any faith affiliation or label."

This is exactly the point. There are no less followers, just those that won't be stuck into a group or even a specific church. I'm no less religious than I once was, but I know what I believe and don't want someone trying to categorize me or force me to identify with any particular group.

It is not a case of people "with no religion."

For the most part it is a religion of irreligion.

It is not a case of zero religion; it is a case of -100 religion.

Well, when something is constantly moved by the culture and the latest and greatest fad, it's hard to be "in the world but not of it." At some point, calling yourself a protestant seems silly when there is almost no difference between you and the "non-believers."

As I read the article I was reminded of Reagan's comment about the Democrat Party, to the effect that he didn't leave the party, the party left him. What with liberation theology, gay marriage, gay ordination, "reimagining" projects bordering on goddess worship, church-endorsed environmentalism bordering on pagan earth worship, perhaps some Christians have fled their churches to save their souls.

A friend of mine is a Catholic deacon. He did a study when he was in college a couple of years ago.

In conservative parts of the country -- especially the south -- the numbers of Catholics are growing in leaps and bounds. His current parish in Austin has grown so much over the last decade that they had to add masses to keep the existing masses from overflowing every weekend. If the economy ever recovers, they are going to build a huge new sanctuary.

But in lie-beral parts of the country -- especially the northeast -- Catholic numbers are dropping like lead. And most of the Catholics that are left are definitely in the ''cafeteria'' variety.

I have a cousin who is a Church of Christ preacher. He left the northeast because the few old people left in his church were passing away far faster than new people were joining. But when he came back to Texas, the two churches he has been affiliated with are growing so fast that they don't really have a clue how to keep up (which is a wonderful problem to have).

Evangelical churches are growing, too. These churches are non-denominational I would bet that many people in these churches consider themselves just Christians, rather than Protestant Christians.

Ditto #8. I find great comfort in being a part of the Catholic Church. It's big, it's old and it (gasp!) has rules. Yes, it's flawed. But Jesus knew it would have flaws when he handed it over to a human, Pope Peter.

There is nothing wrong with having a label and wanting to be a part of something bigger than yourself. I don't have all of the answers and neither does the Vatican, but it's nice to know that they are there to teach me about Christ and help me navigate this world in a way that will help get me to the next one. Walking into a Catholic church is like walking into your home. No matter where you are in the world, no matter how desperate things may be, you can walk into a Catholic church and find the feeling and traditions of home. It's wonderful.

Along with mocking organized religions the progressives also alter history by conflating deism with atheism.

The Founding Fathers included a number of "deists" and none of them (unless you count Thomas Paine) were likely atheist.

Like the terms "gay" and "happiness," the word "deism" had a much different connotation in the late 18th century than it has today.

Rudyard Kipling nailed it in his poem, "In The Neolithic Age" --

"There are nine and sixty ways of constructing tribal lays, And every single one of them is right!"

Years of appeasement to the malcontents. Years of allowing them to dominate the conversation in the public square. Years of hearing them whine whilst normal citizens were busy working and raising a family.

And we are supposed to be surprised by this finding?

The answer to this calamity is clear. But it will take households to voice their opinion. Another option is to put the major universities out of business; find a local college, study elsewhere.

Has anyone taken a good look at what resembles college students these days?

#15 So well put. On a Spring Sunday in 1966, I was living with medical students from London Hospital, Anglicans. They gave me directions to a nearby Catholic Church, St. Boniface's in Whitechapel which served a German speaking congregation. So, after strolling through Jack the Ripper territory I slipped into in a pew, blessed myself and tried to collect my thoughts.

Here I was, an American girl in London, attending a Latin mass and about to hear a sermon in German. It felt wonderful because I was home.

MUMBAI — India hanged a man on Saturday who had been convicted of involvement in the 2001 attack on Parliament that killed nine people. The hanging of Afzal Guru, a 43-year-old militant with the group Jaish-e-Mohammad, came more than a decade after the Dec. 13, 2001, suicide attack on India’s Parliament in which five gunmen opened fire, killing nine people, including security officials and a journalist. The execution drew protests from human rights groups concerned about the growing use of capital punishment in such cases.

If the U.S. government ends up careening off the "fiscal cliff," Republicans in Congress stand to shoulder most of the blame, according to a new poll released Tuesday. A majority of Americans said in a new, post-election poll that they do not expect President Barack Obama and members of Congress to reach an agreement to avoid the effects of the fiscal cliff, the combination of automatic spending cuts and tax hikes set to take effect at the beginning of the year.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay.

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

Chicago - In a ruling that could revolutionize college sports, a federal agency has given football players at Northwestern University the green light to unionize. Wednesday´s landmark ruling by a regional director of National Labor Relations Board means the players are deemed employees under federal law and so can create the nation´s first college athletes´ union. Union lawyers argued the Big Ten school´s football players are part of a commercial enterprise that generates hefty profits through their labor. The NCAA, Big Ten Conference and the private school vehemently opposed the union drive. Northwestern argued that college athletes are
