Exodus: Why Americans are Leaving Religion—and Why They’re Unlikely to Come Back

The American religious landscape has undergone substantial changes in recent years. However, one of the most consequential shifts in American religion has been the rise of religiously unaffiliated Americans. This trend emerged in the early 1990s. In 1991, only six percent of Americans identified their religious affiliation as “none,” and that number had not moved much since the early 1970s. By the end of the 1990s, 14% of the public claimed no religious affiliation. The rate of religious change accelerated further during the late 2000s and early 2010s, reaching 20% by 2012. Today, one-quarter (25%) of Americans claim no formal religious identity, making this group the single largest “religious group” in the U.S.

Why Are You Still A Christian After Reading This? (Thorough)

A true Bible study may actually shake your faith and even cause you to reconsider your association with Christianity.

It has also closed a dark door in my past – Christianity. Many of you hear about some of the positive themes of Christianity, such as “love” and the whole “Jesus saves” story. I’m here to share with you some of the things I found in the Bible. I’m warning you that if you’re reasonable and honest and you ask questions – you might not like the answers.

NYC Mayor Failed to Stop Rabbis from Sucking on Newborns’ Penises and Giving Them Herpes

There’s a disturbing practice in the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish culture known as metzitzah b’peh in which a rabbi (mohel) sucks the blood from a baby boy who has just been circumcised. I repeat: The rabbi sucks the baby boy’s penis post-circumcision… because religion.

If that wasn’t disgusting enough, some of the mohels have had herpes simplex, passing the virus on to the children. Since 2000, more than a dozen infants have contracted herpes in this manner and at least two have died.

Study Concludes Intercessory Prayer Doesn’t Work; Christians Twist the Results

This idea has been tested repeatedly — usually, the studies have flaws. And even when the results show that the intercessory prayer has no effect on anyone, those who believe in it will look at the hits and ignore (or rationalize) the misses.
