Swedes abandon the church

According to the World Value's Survey, Sweden is one of the most secular countries in the world. In other words, the importance of religion in people's daily lives is much less than in many other cultures.

And this is shown in an analysis released by the Church of Sweden's chief analyst, Jonas Bromander. he claims that in the next ten years, the church will lose one million members´and this will lead to a loss of 1.5 billion kronor for the organisation. The obvious consequence of this will be cutbacks amongst the 23,000 employees and that many of Sweden's 3700 churches will have to be shut down.

Is this the cause or the effect of Sweden's secularisation?

    US threatens Russia, China for not supporting campaign of terror in Syria
    By Tony Cartalucci / Information Clearing House on July 06, 2012

    The US' increasingly unhinged rhetoric reached a new level of absurdity this week as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on Western nations and their Arab proxies to "make it clear that Russia and China will pay a price because they are holding up progress" in regards to the US' premeditated campaign of terrorism and violent regime change in Syria.

    It was made public as early as 2007 by Seymour Hersh in his report "The Redirection" published in the New Yorker that the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and others were gathering, funding, arming, and deploying a front of violent sectarian extremists, many with ties to Al Qaeda, to undermine, destabilize, and eventually lead to the overthrow of the governments of Lebanon, Syria, and Iran. The violent campaign was rolled out publicly in the wake of a similarly premeditated geopolitical ploy, the so-called "Arab Spring," and has since then been clearly exposed as the work of violent terrorist networks. Ironically, these terrorist networks are those allegedly the impetus of the "War on Terror," now paradoxically being funded, armed, and politically backed by the West.

    It was reported that Libyan terrorists led by Abdul Hakim Belhaj, commander of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), a US State Department-listed "Foreign Terrorist Organization," had joined the so-called "Free Syrian Army" (FSA) along with sectarian extremists from Iraq who specialize in the indiscriminate terrorist bombings now ravaging Syria.
