    Interesting article. In countries where freedom is diminishing, so is Christianity. In countries where freedom and liberty are increasing, Christianity is increasing.

    Coincidence? No, since the basic tenet of Christianity is equality.

    " The Christian population has shifted dramatically over the last century away from Europe to Africa, Asia and the Americas, yet Christians overall remain the largest religious group in the world, according to a new analysis released Monday."

    indeed. there surely is a nutty blog out there somewhere, which could "support" her statements.

    maybe it can be found on

    christiansrule.com

    or on

    youwillgotohell.us

    or on

    Wow. Epic logic fail. The European countries, particularly the Scandinavian ones, tend to be both less religious and more free than we are.

    You guys really don't care much for people in general, do you? You hate them so much that you will not acknowledge those things that help them.

    Freedom and equality are Christian tenets. In countries where Christianity blooms, so do they. In countries where Christianity, specifically, is demonized and oppressed, so is freedom and equality.

    England and Europe have gone downhill since their migration away from Christianity. The article does support that, and anyone who denies that is just a lying anti-Christian propagandist.

    Heil.

    Though the connection I have made is that where Christianity makes inroads, it appears to me that increased liberty follows.

    It depends on what you mean by liberty. I am pretty sure the indigenous peoples of many countries did not think or feel that christianity was liberating.
