Every year there are fewer and fewer Christians. Moderate Christians are leaving the faith then not joining another. However, the percentage of Christians who are fundamentalist increases. This is because the pool of Christians is primarily drained of non-fundamentalists, leaving behind a bigger percentage of fundamentalists.
Why are there fewer and fewer Christians?
~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
- The elderly, who are most likely to be Christian, are dying off.
- Every year there are more new young people entering adulthood. They are least likely to be Christian.
- The Internet makes it impossible for churches to control what their congregation reads and hears. They are now opened to criticism of church dogma.
- Child sex and physical abuse scandals.
- Exposure of the lavish life styles of the televangelists and how they frivolously spend their money.
- More youth are going to university where they mix with people with different ideas.
- Most people stick with the religious (or non-religious) beliefs they had as a teen for their entire lives. You can tell what the future percentage of Christians will be by looking at the young. They are the inevitable future.

Quid Pro Quo
What Putin wants from Trump includes:
- removal of the sanctions (this is worth trillions to Putin and Exxon)
- Derailing the Paris climate change accords to extend the value of Putin’s oil.
- support for military action in the Ukraine and Crimea
- derailing NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation)
- destabilizing the EU
- help money laundering
- access to all US classified information via secure private back link.
What Trump wants from Putin includes:
- rig the election and future elections
- permits for Trump Moscow building project
- keep blackmail videos secret
Putin held up his end of the bargain. He rigged the US election in favour of Trump. During the campaign Trump promised to remove the sanctions without asking for anything in return. When he got into office, the senate blocked him from making any changes to the sanctions with an almost unanimous vote that he could not veto. Trump countered by refusing the enforce the sanctions. As it stands, Trump owes Putin a favour worth many trillions. That is why Trump kisses Putin’s butt at every opportunity.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
