#AceNewsReport – May.31: This is a report from my friend Father Paul
This is grim:
A landmark in national life has just been passed. For the first time in recorded history, those declaring themselves to have no religion have exceeded the number of Christians in Britain. Some 44 per cent of us regard ourselves as Christian, 8 per cent follow another religion and 48 per cent follow none. The decline of Christianity is perhaps the biggest single change in Britain over the past century. For some time, it has been a stretch to describe Britain as a Christian country. We can more accurately be described now as a secular nation with fading Christian institutions.
Either the dark forces of evil, or Time Warner Cable have prevented my computer from reaching the Internet. Suppressing the instinct to assume they are one and the same. I would write more, and make it pretty but, you know. Phone.
Sad sad news that Britain has reached this place. America will soon. Africa may one day send missionaries here.
