The majority of them? Above 50%? I assume you're going to show us the research you did to come up with this number, or did you just pull this out of your pulpit? You also refer to "the church". Which "the church" would that be? Baptists? Methodists? Catholics? They all think very differently and espouse very different ideals. I'm afraid you are in fact painting with a very broad brush. You can't just toss out blanket statements and expect people to agree with you. I personally believe that the role of organized religion has changed in many instances, due quite a bit to the profound influence that our media driven society has had on them. Organized religion, due to its very nature, tends to be hide-bound and slow to change. When society is changing at an incredibly fast pace, that leaves the doorway wide open for the organizations to be misused. It also leaves a large avenue of protest for those that dislike having to learn new things and new ways of doing things. In addition, the fast pace of societal change creates easy marks for those that are power-hungry and want a "congregation" that will follow their lead.
