Great article on Europe's abandonment of religion
Faith Fades Where It Once Burned Strong
It's absolutely not surprising to me that it's the world's poorest countries that tend to look to religion. It's an unnecessary shackle on the mind so long as you don't need it for your daily dose of false hope, and leaving it behind is the wise and learned path. Hopefully, religion will become less prevelent worldwide, and people can size each other up on their merits rather than their group identity. Unfortunately, people like our idiot "President" and many American voters still see reactionary religious beliefs as central to existance. One can hope, though... one can hope.
