Is the pagan religion taking over America?

We can hope.

'The fastest growing religion (in terms of percentage) is Wicca -- a Neopagan religion that is sometimes referred to as Witchcraft. Numbers of adherents went from 8,000 in 1990 to 134,000 in 2001. Their numbers of adherents are doubling about every 30 months. 4,5 Wiccans in Australia have a very similar growth pattern, from fewer than 2,000 in 1996 to 9,000 in 2001. 10 In Canada, Wiccans and other Neopagans showed the greatest percentage growth.'

It's getting harder to explain science and all those other pesky things that kids ask about in Christian terms! :lol:

Quite.

"Mommy, why do they find Dinosaurs?"
"Simple, Billy. During the Flood, the animals raced to the high ground, and the Dinosaurs were too dumb and slow."
"... That sounds kinda dumb."
"That's how our pastor taught it. Now, go get dressed for Devotional."

:)

"Dad, how could the whole world get covered in Water?"
"You could strech a drop of rain to cover the whole earth, Theoretically, Billy."
"... Teacher said it would take 150 000 tons of Water to cover the Earth with an atom thick of water."
"Your teacher's a Satanist, now go get ready for Church."
"Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink."

It's good to see the statistics remain the same. I remember in the 90s, I think it was 92 or 93, that after the religious census survey went around, it was determined wicca and paganism in general were the fastest growing religion in the US and that was backed up again in the late 90s as well after the next census (or was it 2000?). Nice to see we're still growing 8-)

Well the only real reason I see for the churches keeping their masses is that they proselytize... They're as bad as solicitors with bottles of 'miracle' cleaners and other junk.

...
Why does the Church suddenly remind me of Billy Mays?

"THIS PRODUCT WILL DO ANYTHING. HEAL THE SICK, GET YOU TO HEAVEN, AND EVEN WHIPE THOSE SCRUBBY PAGANS OFF THE MAP!"
"Mr Mays, we're not even on a set... You're ordering a Pizz-"
"SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH WHEN BILLY MAYS IS TALKING!"
----------------
I'M SORRY, BILLY. I HAD TO GO THERE.
R.I.P. Billy Mays

LOL! That sounds like those 'amazing' faith healers on TV... I actually enjoyed watching Billy because he reminds me of a very loud, annoying, smiling Chuck Norris. Who sells anything. :lol:
