Subject: RE: BS: Norway Leads The Way
The problem is, they claim us all as believing in fairy tales. For instance, Church of England, Methodists, left footers etc add up baptism records. I don't know for certain whether I was, I'd have to ask my older brother. Certainly we kept my gran happy by having a christening bash for my two.
They include them in their delusional statistics. They also confuse attendances at weddings, christenings and funerals in their attendance statistics. Plus of course, most vicars lie on their returns to keep their parish and not lose it to a "team" vicar.
Sunday attendances are the best record. Less than 1% of people on average attend Christian churches, and that's their own figures... I doubt Norway is any more delusional. They haven't had the history of monarchy using religion as a tool in the same way we did. We kept our empire and enjoyed the fruits of slavery because God said we are the anointed country so fill yer boots.
More people classed as Muslim, Sikh etc observe their faith, and mosques, temples etc get good attendances. Christian leaders just assume they are relevant because their granddads were.
