Although demographic replacement is the most obvious seismic change in America, being so visibly obvious, with the breakneck increase in accepted sexual degeneracy keeping pace in a close second, there is another change in our nation that is mirrored across the formerly White Western world: the utter collapse of public, organized religion. More specifically Christianity. Pew Research recently released a very large study of religious trends and it is not good news for organized religion (although that doesn’t mean it is all bad news for Christianity).
There was a time when almost everyone expressed some sort of affiliation with Christianity. In 1972, the year after I was born, a survey was started that asked about religious affiliation. As of that first survey better than 90% of Americans identified with Christianity. As everyone knows that affiliation has been slumping but most people don’t realize quite how much nor how precipitously it has diminished since the 1990s.
To make matters a little worse, that 63% likely still includes double digit percentages of people who claim a Christian affiliation but haven’t been to church in many years and don’t have any attachment to the faith apart from a family connection. From my experience after decades in the Christian church, I can say with an enormous level of confidence that most “Christians” in America know very little about their professed faith and what they do know is wrong. It is a cultural identifier, something to give them some sort of identity and deflect the proselytization of the zealous. They don’t read their Bible or attend services and only pray when something really bad is going on.
percentage of people that actually believe and practice the Christian faith is probably closer to 25%, and that is being really generous. Christianity is supposed to be a whole-life transformative faith (“You must be born again”), not something you pull out of your back pocket when things are crappy and you need some comfort. That is true for very few people.
The pace of the decline is going to only accelerate and ironically for many Christians on /ourside/ it would have declined a lot faster already without mass immigration.
Unlike a lot of people who were once fervent Christians that subsequently walked away, I don’t have any interest in trying to convince other people to leave their faith. There can be a utility to a cultural Christian faith although the history of that cultural Christian religion in the West has been spotty at best. Still I would rather live among people who have a moral foundation built on cultural Christianity than one with Islam, Hinduism or Judaism as the source.
Regardless, the end of America as a majority culturally Christian nation is at hand and practically speaking we passed that point years ago. That has some important ramifications for /ourside/ but none are more critical than this:
Our survival as a people will require that we stop dividing ourselves on religious grounds.
I have zero tolerance for those who claim that the only way forward is to embrace Christian nationalism nor for those that demand that we can only move forward if we reject Christianity entirely. Those that seek to divide us because we believe differently from each other are no better than our overt enemies, and in some ways are worse. I was incredibly aggravated in August when Gab published a grotesque essay by some weirdo going by the name Chris Hume with a handful of followers on Gab that decried “pagan nationalism”: Unbelief is Destructive. That’s Why Pagan Nationalism is So Dangerous
I archived the essay to avoid giving the original any clicks because it is so dumb.
Andrew Torba created and runs Gab and has done some great things for free speech, providing a platform for dissidents that you can’t get anywhere else. He also posts stuff like this:
Someone better get Jesus on the horn because America is pretty much dead at this point. On the other hand, since we are all equally “children of God”, why would Jesus prefer a White America over a multi-racial America?
As I said, I have no beef with the Christian faith in general despite my leaving all organized religion. What I do have an issue with is causing division among Whites based on what we do or don’t believe about God/gods. As adherence to Christianity rapidly fades in America, this is going to be even more important. We are widely outnumbered globally and are soon going to be outnumbered locally, and only by being unified as a people do we have any chance of surviving. Believe what you want, go where you will on Sunday morning or don’t go anywhere at all. It doesn’t matter to me. Only our survival does.
Anyone seeking to divide our people based on religious beliefs is weakening us and is therefore at enmity with those seeking our survival. Only together can we hope to survive.
