← Norway abolishes state sponsored Church of Norway

This is wonderful, does anyone know if this step is unprecedented? I mean has any other state ever taken this step without attacking the church (like the communists?). Hopefully this could set a precedent for other Western European states to follow. Religion is in retreat in many places, and so I had a debate with someone about which religion could be the one most likely to survive free thought, questions, good education, affluence and good standard of living. We decided that Hinduism could be the most robust because of it's flexibility and fluidity. Christianity and Islam are simply far to brittle, and need laws such as blasphemy to sustain their weird notions.

What do others think, which religion is mostly to survive the future?
