By 2030, say projections, a third of Americans will have no religious preference  

Yet almost none of their politicians are openly agnostic or atheist

Good!
Religion isn’t doing much good anyway

i would imagine this will take a while, i mean, most people believe that cow’s milk is made for them… you can’t expect too much 😉

Like, God made cows specifically for human consumption?

What a weird hill to die on. Milk? Can’t relate as a lactose intolerant person.

more like big milk propaganda and lobbying 😡

but yeah, this anti-animistic approach by several religions is also part of the problem I think, especially in pre-capitalist times

I wonder if the U.S. will remove “In God We Trust” from the dollars or there will be no cash by 2030?

Also from flags, like the new Mississippi flag.

Side note, as a Canadian, I want to remove the “God keep our land glorious and free” lyric in our national anthem too. Always seemed weird to me to have that in there.
