The War on Christianity in the US and UK – More Churches Opening than Closing

First, the UK – that godless bastion of Europe:

net diff.-204-63-36-332+250+664-243+1,417

Now, while this is a few years ago, it still shows that more churches are opening than closing – and remember, these numbers rarely include house churches.

And, on the heel of the news that the AoG no longer requires Young Earth Creationism, they opened nearly 400 churches in 2011.

I dunno… that war thing better get going.
