"It is well documented that Christianity has withered dramatically in Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. The failure of the faith in the West is regularly denounced by Popes and Protestant leaders. Churches are being converted into libraries, laundromats and pubs. Those who disbelieve in deities typically make up large portions of the population, according to some surveys they make up the majority of citizens in Scandinavia, France and Japan."

quedula says: good news yes, but we have to be careful that the influence of christianity is not replaced by that of other religions that were not subject to the Enlightenment and are still at a primitive stage in their development. For example, according to Sam Harris, if present trends continue France will be a majority muslim country in 25 years.
