According to an astonishing research, a number of people are changing their faith from Christianity on a global scale. It’s predicted that more than 100 million are expected to switch by 2050 with only 40 million entering the religion. The country of green Shamrock and source of famous breweries, Ireland has seen a shocking change in its religious population density as well.
Even though 80% of the population still accounts to Christians, there has been a significant shift seen in the growth of Hindu and Muslim population. The reason for this has chiefly been migration. The number of Catholics in Ireland stood at 94.9% but now has dropped down to 78.3%. From the past five years, around 132,220 people have abandoned their Christian faith. There’s even been a spike in the number of atheists as ‘No Religion’ has grabbed the attention of many. With science sliding into the world, Bibles have been replaced with textbooks in the hands of youth.
Porn impact: Lucky Humpers
Lucky Humpers is unique series that cater to the big population of youth. Why? The answer is simple. Because it’s all about youth – the series where young guys are living their dreams up with world’s most known so-called MILFs. Youth versus experience in this case is the biggest catering factor.
The second largest religion is Church of Ireland (2.6%) which faced a decline but recently has started gaining slight momentum. Other religions that constitute the secular graph in Ireland are Orthodox Christianity (1.3%) and Presbyterian (0.5%). However, as mentioned it is a change in two minor religions that has caught attention of researchers in the twentieth century. Muslims now account to around 63,443 since the last survey which is twice the amount from the time history of Muslims started in 1950s. The percentage increase has been from 0.1% in the 1990s to 1.1% in the 2000s, clearly marking Islam as being a popular choice. Hindus have increased to make 14,300 in numbers becoming the seventh largest religion.
There was a time when contraceptives, abortion, homosexuality and divorce were illegal in the god-fearing country, but the past decade has seen a progressive development on Ireland’s beliefs. This is an advantage towards modernization but there has been a slump in people who go to Church. So much so that parishes have started to believe they make the minority!
Whether it is ailing from diseases or asking for blessings for the whole family, it is only time that shall narrate the faith of Christianity holding on in Ireland. Many old residents reminisce the days when God was depended upon and find it a pity that his absence is becoming prevalent. However, with events like the visit of Pope Francis, there is still hope that Christianity might still flame the candle of religion.
