Research published earlier this year suggested that church attendance is declining so fast that the number of regular churchgoers will be fewer than those attending mosques within a generation.
According to Religious Trends, an analysis of religious practice in Britain, the huge drop off in attendance means that the Church of England, Catholicism and other denominations will become financially unviable.

LOL, I'm going to clear up a factual error in there. The Bible "steals" from Judaism, does it? Uh, try actually cracking a book on world religion sometime, would you? Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all worship the same God. Both Islam and Christianity are off shoots from traditional Judaism. The Torrah is the first 5 books of the Old Testament. Jesus was a Jew. The Apostles: Jews.... Paul: a Jew.... The vast majority of early Christians: all Jews.... Hell, Messianic Judaism is not a small religion today. The Quran, while not directly acknowledging Him as the Son of God, discusses Jesus and identifies Him as a great, great prophet. I guess they "stole" from Christianity, eh?
To say that the Bible "stole" from Judaism is kinda like saying the United States "stole" from Britain, or Canada "stole" from France, or Mexico "stole" from Spain, or you "stole" from your father because you are composed of half his DNA. The statement indicates a complete and utter lack of even basic knowledge of world religion and speaks volumes to where your attitude towards religion came from... most people inately have a fear and often a hatred of that which they have no knowledge of. Seriously man, your local library, Barnes & Noble, or een an afternoon spent on Wikipedia reading about as many different world religions as you can find information on would at the very least inform you as to what it is you're railing against.

If only all religions would die out, we would all benefit.
There must be something we can do to wipe out the scourge of the planet.
