Is the role of religion dead in today’s society?

Religon is dead in today’s society to the majority of the population. The number of people attending services and making vocations as priest and ministers are declining.

There a number of reasons for this. Allegations of Child Abuse and allegatiosn of cover-ups have damaged the catholic church.

Other people seam to think that money is the new god.

Other people view the established churchs as old-fashioned with nothing to offer them. Others including myself view most relgions as very discriminatory towards groups they find themselves being part of due to their sexuality or habitation status.

Is this the way christians are supposed to be treating others due to the fact they are gay or single mothers.

Religon is not completely dead as many immigrants are very religous so attendences at mosques and some churches are increasing across europe. This has the affect of making others, including myself, to try and rediscover there spirituality weather it by joining a new church or by becoming reinvigorated within their own church.
