(Jack Minor) Recent polls and studies seem to indicate that America may be on track to become like England and the rest of Europe who have long since abandoned their glorious Christian heritage in favor of secularism that is now openly hostile to Christianity. A recent Gallup poll reveals that 20 percent of American adults are now claiming no formal religious identification, a five-point increase since 2008.
