So Ken Ham whines and pules on DU...this means we are winning

He and all the Evangies know, they are an endangered species.

Soon, their churches will be museums.

Every year, there are less and less Evangies. They simply can't recruit enough sheep.

Add to it that marriage equality is practically a done deal, Obama won and not even the GOP is at home with the people who stole their party.

So, Mr Ham did what any Evangie would do - he panics, threatens legal action, and rather than defend his delusions, he double downs on stupid.

1. "Every year, there are less and less Evangies"

I would so love for that to be true!

Are there numbers to back it up?

2. Here's a CNN link

 

http://articles.cnn.com/2009-03-09/living/us.religion.less.christian_1_american-religious-identification-survey-christian-nation-evangelical?_s=PM:LIVING

It doesn't specify between evangelicals, catholics and mainline protestants

I'll look for one that does

3. Mixed news at best

"At the same time there has been an increase in the number of people expressing no religious affiliation." -- Good

"The survey also found that "born-again" or "evangelical" Christianity is on the rise, while the percentage who belong to "mainline" congregations such as the Episcopal or Lutheran churches has fallen." -- Not so good

"One in three Americans consider themselves evangelical, and the number of people associated with mega-churches has skyrocketed from less than 200,000 in 1990 to more than 8 million in the latest survey." -- Ugh!

It cited cases of evangelical Christianity going down over the past 12 years

5. Hmmm, no stats to back this up.

However, I was in the bible belt from 1999 to 2005. It seemed to me after 9-11 there was a dramatic spike in flock membership. Actually, it was exactly what I figured would happen in the few weeks after the attack. Now, I would believe that membership has been on the decline since 2007. Just my observation.
