Newsweek’s The End of Christian America

The End of Christian America

The percentage of self-identified Christians has fallen 10 points in the past two decades. How that statistic explains who we are now—and what, as a nation, we are about to become.

These statistics are possibly misleading. Twenty years ago was the height of the New Age movement as untold numbers of ‘Christians by birth’, with far more sophisticated critiques of Christianity than science types could imagine, moved into a different ‘religious’ mode altogether. It is possible to say that religion has progressed in that interval, not receded.
Getting past Christian dogmas can accelerate religious enquiry in new directions. The attempt by the Dawkins cult to monopolize such developments with a puerile and badly thought out ‘atheism’ (what of the magnificent Buddhist variety?) is a distraction. An immense number of propagandsists are rushing to fill this void.
