(CNN) – A new decade-long survey of American congregations shows religious health and vitality are weaker than they were 10 years ago. While the survey showed that many congregations are adopting new technologies and innovative worship, there were steep drops in financial health and attendance at weekly worship services.
Overall, median weekend worship attendance of your typical congregation dropped from 130 to 108 during the decade, according to the FACT surveys."
So church attendance is down. Fewer and fewer Americans are identifying as being "religious". Yet in the Republican Party, religious fanatics like Prick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are the rising stars of the GOP and represent the best the Republicans have to offer in 2012.
This tells me that the evangelical Christian core of the conservative Republican party is SO out of touch with the American mainstream population that they don't have a fucking snowball's chance in HELL of winning over independent swing voters in a General election.
The American people want, need, and deserve a President who relies on FACTS, not FAITH.
Prick Perry tried to pray the Texas drought away and his state caught ignited in flames (literally) and experienced the hottest summer ever recorded.
So that didn't work.
Michele Bachmann and her OVERWHELMINGLY CLOSETED GAY HUSBAND have a "Christian Counselling" service that promise to "pray the gay away".
That will NEVER work!
So this is what I don't understand.
If Christianity and church attendance is on the decline, where is this rising Republican religious fundamentalism finding it's base?
How can Republicans possibly think they can win a General election when their Core Base is a diminishing number of delusional people who believe in medieval mythological fantasies?
I don't get this. What the fuck are they thinking?
