Who reads Newsweak?
I can state with absolute certainty that “News”week will be dead LONG before the demise of Christianity.
“The end of Christian America”? The last I looked it was the end of Newsweek, and Time, and a few dozen lib newspapers coast to coast.
“Who reads Newsweak?”
I think just the staff.
This is standard issue; “The Easter-Americans-No-Longer-Believe-In-Jesus Issue”.
Yhey think because they print it that people will believe it.
Hopefully this translates into a spike in church attendance numbers....
According to Gallup Poll trends on church attendance among American Christians, weekly attendance among Protestants has been fairly steady over the past six decades, averaging 42% in 1955 versus 45% in the middle of the current decade. However, attendance among Roman Catholics dropped from 75% to 45% over the same period.
It certainly addresses it.
I think you are correct.
Who reads Newsweek?
Only people in hospital waiting rooms.
