The End of Christian America?

what kind of silly title is this? Maybe a decline, but “the end?” Seriously, standards of professional journalism have fallen greatly these past fifteen or so years.

According to the American Religious Identification Survey that got Mohler’s attention, the percentage of self-identified Christians has fallen 10 percentage points since 1990, from 86 to 76 percent. The Jewish population is 1.2 percent; the Muslim, 0.6 percent.

So let’s see, atheists make up 15%, Jews make up 1.2%, Muslims make up barely 0.6%, and Christians still make up 76% of the country, but it’s THE END folks. Silly, silly, silly.

Though it should be added, American Christianity deserves this after their culture wars over the past 30 years. They never understood that warring against others rarely turns them to your side. Normally when you “go to war” against someone, you’re not going there to turn their opinion to yours, but you are going there to “defeat” THEIR view.

Maybe American Christians will learn to get back to the basics and follow Jesus Christ first, and not try to constantly be at war against someone else, constantly pretend to be the victim all the time. Maybe then they won’t be considered “ended.”
