Weep for Britain: she has lost her soul.
If that’s too much, well, sorry! It’s the mother country. As an American, I’ll always feel an attachment to Britain–even if they were the bad guys in 1812.
This year, for the first time ever, the Office for National Statistics reported Christians in the minority in England and Wales–46.2 percent, down 13.1 percent from 2011 (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/11/29/uk-census-christians-now-minority-england-wales-first-time/). That’s an awful lot of ground to lose, in just ten years between surveys.
Cradle of saints! David, Aaron, Julius, Kentigern, Bede, Augustine of Canterbury–it would take all day to list them all.
Even the massive importation of Muslims can’t fully account for the numbers.
Second on the list, the No. 2 spot, went to “No Religion,” at 37.2 percent. In fact, all “religions” increased their numbers except for Christianity.
There are reasons for this change. There have to be reasons for it. Meanwhile, although they bear the title “Defender of the Faith,” British royals have left us in doubt as to what faith they mean to defend, if any.
It’s an evil age in a fallen world; and we pray, “God defend us!”
