strong textInteresting to see the net downward trend, even if it is painfully slow.

However, nearer to home, I came across this interesting staement:

"Scotland has secularized faster than any nation in history". At one time Scotland was known as the "land of the book" because religion was so entrenched. So it can be done.

That statement, BTW, is from an article by David Robertson, reflecting on the fact that possibly the biggest evangelical Church Of Scotland congregation has seceded from the national church over the issue of gay clergy:

Interesting times here. The article is worth reading ro get a feel for what evangies are up to.
