Religion to become 'extinct'

The 2011 census forms are due for completion on 27 March. Included is the voluntary question, 'What is your religion?' giving eight options including 'No religion' and 'Any other.....'. In addition to English and Welsh forms, translations are available in 56 languages which should lead to some interesting answers. In 2001 'Jedi' was the talking point but this time the emphasis is on persuading people with no religious belief to indicate 'No religion' rather than ignore the question. 

To coincide with the census, a poll commissioned by the British Humanist Association suggests that two-thirds of Britons are not religious. This comes on top of another report that suggests religion may become extinct in nine nations.

The 'nine nations' referred to were Australia, Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Switzerland, countries in which the census queried religious affiliation. The implication that Christianity is on the wane appears to be confirmed. For Humanists that may be welcome news but the religious vacuum increases the risk of cultural jihad.

The BBC has been doing its best to achieve the extinction of Christianity for some time. After the appointment of a Muslim as Head of Religion and Ethics, previously held by an agnostic, we are offered programmes such as the "Bible's buried secrets" presented by a senior lecturer from the Islam indebted Exeter University pondering such questions as the existence of King David and whether God had a wife. Given that Islam regards Jews and Christians as inferior and little better than heathens perhaps such propaganda is to be expected:

The treatment of non-Muslims is also carefully
spelled out in classical Islamic teaching. Pagans are
to be fought until they convert to Islam, but Jews
and Christians (known as the People of the Book)
are permitted to practise their faith within the
Islamic state. This is however conditional on them
conforming to various demeaning regulations
designed to reinforce their lowly dhimma status in
comparison with Muslims. One particular condition
imposed on them was the payment of a special
poll-tax called the jizya. Like women, they receive
less compensation and their testimony carries less
weight than that of a Muslim man.

Some religions may become extinct but that only increases the danger of Islamisation, then where will we be!

  1. Every nation mentioned contains large populations decended from the dispersed of the lost tribes of Israel (beyond just the jewish people). These nations were actually founded by them. If we open our minds to the truth of this, we’ll begin to understand why the decline exists.

    Romans 11:25
    For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

    Luke 18:8
    … Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
