Skeptic Tank!

By: Wayne Michaels Re: Christian downfall There have been some recent posts about the christian brand of religion being on the way out. And of course the predictable response of "Is Not!" by our current crop of fundies. In light of this I though some would be interested in the following membership numbers of the mainline protestant versions of said christainity. Source is August 9, 1993 issue of Newsweek. The drawing of conclusions is left to echo participants. Presbyterian Lutheran American Baptist 1965: 4.2 Million 1965: 5.7 Million 1965: 1.3 Million 1992: 2.8 Million 1992: 5.2 Million 1993: 1.2 Million United Methodist Episcopal Disciples of Christ 1965: 11.0 Million 1965: 3.6 Million 1965: 1.9 Million 1992: 8.7 Million 1991: 2.4 Million 1991: 1.0 Million United Church of Christ 1965: 2.0 Million 1992: 1.5 Million
