  •  "Religious identification"... (4+ / 0-)

    ...is the very last thing to go. IIRC, in Canada four times as many people identify as United Church than actually go to church, even at Christmas and Easter. For most of these people, religion is such a trivial aspect of their lives that they can't even be bothered to turn their backs on it.

    I can see priests becoming little more than choreographers for weddings and funerals, felt to be necessary, but necessary as a wedding cake is necessary (and probably less expensive). They will be there as part of the show; whether anyone believes anything they preach will be irrelevant. That's more or less the way it is in Japan now.
