Christianity's decline is due to the fact that it is a religion of choice and that has been realized by all mainstream Christian groups. No one here is erecting speakers above churches to force people to listen to prayers 5 times a day. I don't remember the last time a person was stoned, hung, etc by a mainstream Christian group. It is a free choice of whether a person wants to be a Christian or not. Many choose not to be a Christian due to what is perceived as to be a lifestyle that "isnt fun" in my opinion. Im sure a lot of you will dispute my last statement and you are free to do so. It is simply my opinion.
