Thank god.

Christianity needs a time out. I hope this trend continues.

With the Behavior we have all seen from "Christians" over the last few decades. Can you really be surprised.
 
2022-11-29 1:40:14 PM  
Given the overlap between "evangelicals" and "climate change deniers" I'm comfortable blaming the flood on the Christians this time around
 
2022-11-29 1:41:29 PM  
That's because they exported their crazy cultists to the US, South Africa and Australia.

Wake me when this is the truth in the United States.

Well, hopefully they have enough diversity now to do something about the inbreeding problem.
But white people need to stop f**king white people in the UK.
Their offspring are all coming out with prognateous jaws, narrow eyes sockets and IQs that have them voting for Brexit.

Of those who chose to write in their answer under the "any other religion" option, the largest group identified as Pagan, with a tenfold rise from 2011 in those identifying themselves as Shaman.

Must be the new icon.

"Godless Heathens", Subby?
In the dictionary under 'redundant' it says: "See redundant".

because it's a good start.

I enjoy my free time on the weekend and have better ideas of what to do with 10% of my income.

Ha! As long as I say "I love you jeebus" when I die, the angry sky monster won't be getting his kicks having me tortured for eternity. And I won't have to attend any of his scammy little meetings where you have give him money

I recall listening to a conservative Christian once who explained that there's simply no way "little old us" (as in all of humanity) could possibly be farking up the entire planet's climate because "God was in control".

My head hurts just remembering it.
 
2022-11-29 1:57:17 PM  
Well, we all know who (((they))) worship in the (((City of London))).   No, not him.  It's ancestor worship.   The current ancestors are JMW Turner, Jane Austen, and Churchill on the Twenty, Tenner, and Fiver respectively.
 
2022-11-29 1:58:33 PM  
It's a sort of distillation process here in the US. The percentage of the population that claims religion as an important part of their life decreases, leaving only the most rabid, maniacal followers. I think you can easily see this in 'murica, especially over the last decade or so.

Godless heathens seem to have better sex lives and not have a lode stone of religious guilt tied around their necks.

It's amazing how much more you get done when you don't feel guilty all the time about everything.

A step in the right direction, but I would be happier if it were a story with respect people not being religious, not just Christians.

Anything that reduces the political influence of authoritarian christian clergy is fine by me.
Or authoritarian anything really.  I think authoritarian politics is more a mental illness than ideology but that's just...like... my opinion man.

Be careful what you wish for.  I suspect that there are far more crazies not shooting up daycare centers because of religion than crazies shooting up daycare centers because of religion.

What do you think is going to happen to those guys on the edge when you take away hope and purpose?  One study found that more than 60% of incels are atheist or agnostic.  That should make you more than a little uneasy.
 
2022-11-29 2:51:12 PM  
The problem is that while there are fewer religious people, the ones who are left are becoming more fervent.

Counter point: the endemic violence of the pro life cult.
Them people love to use violence to achieve their objectives.

You would think the followers of a religion that's predicated on some guy named Noah dealing with climate change would know a thing or two about it.

Anyway - don't you know what demographic contains the fewest atheists?
Prison inmates.
We can trade statistics all day.

I'm fine with religion going away, IF someone will step up and take over the task of putting smug, pithy quotes up each week on the roadside signs the "cool" churches have.

Great job, self-proclaimed evangelicals! Keep up the good work, and a few more years, we'll be able to put you on reservations, and the non-religious tourists can come in on buses to view your primitive native dances.

Why do Evangelicals preach against having sex while standing up?
B/c it might lead to dancing.

Uhg, they both seem to result in corruption and masses of tribalistic, violent idiots.  I wonder if there's a common factor...
