Sociologist are amazed by the swift disintegration of Christianity in America. In a stunning transformation confirmed by several surveys and studies.
A Gallup Poll has found that fewer than half of all American now belong to a mosque, church, or temple, down from 70% at the start of the 21st century.

The problem for me is that the majority of people I meet may not belong to a church, temple, mosque, etc. but they still celebrate religious holidays and make it clear that they intend to have a religious wedding and raise their kids under a religion. Several people have told me it’s not fair for me to raise my child secularly because it doesn’t give them a chance to decide for themselves. Which makes absolutely no sense, but this is how lots of people think.
Who cares about religion? It is a non-topic. I had a Political Science prof from Australia who called 'this' place', Canader. Religion is being replaced with other mindless mush. Only in "Canader" can a Sikh wear 'his hat' in parliament---- because it is necessary to respect his "rights". Gotta be a joke!
Christianity is not going anywhere or falling apart. Institutionalized Christianity is just being reformed... Probably splitting between explicit white supremacy and a more progressive norm of classism... White supremacy light-ish.
Institutional religion that's kind of taking a hit around the world. However the world is increasingly religious as a whole.
This is not necessarily a bad thing in the grand scheme of things but people need to not extrapolate It recklessly.
