While religious service attendance has decreased for all white Americans since the early 1970s, the rate of decline has been more than twice as high for those without college degrees compared to those who graduated from college, according to new research to be presented at the 106th Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association.
The study also shows that Americans with higher incomes attend religious services more often, and those who have experienced unemployment at some point over the past 10 years attend less often. In addition, the study finds that those who are married (especially if they have children), those who hold more conservative views toward premarital sex, and those who lost their virginity later than their peers, attend religious services more frequently.

Well good for them! Maybe that way they will get their inspiration from another source and not one that tells them to believe in bull...t!
Maybe they are now realising that the God crap has been used for centuries to controlm and manipulate the masses or should I say the poor!
Believe and rely on yourself and just maybe you might get on or get a brake!
Treat people the way you would like to be treated and just maybe you might get on!
Believe in the self but dont forget they neighbour, but dont believe is anything that is used to control you or the masses!
PS: Thats a lot of people that traditionally looked upon the church s..t for comfort but it never delivered jack!!!
Now people are looking back at 3 generations of prayer yet no progress for that family!!
Waking up comes to mind!!!!

He questioned God, but did believe.
I think that people go to church moreso to network than worship. Kind of hypocritical really. But if it helps me to find a job, I'm all for it.
And yes, I do feel like a hypocrit...but only to a degree. Like I said before, I see at as a tool.
