Questions 21 and 22 make this poll impossible to take. Neither flawed politician can be compared.

 

But, the weakness within the church towards culture is what is driving the decline. The refusal of many pastors to talk about controversial issues and the caving of many on some important cultural issues (such as abandoning traditional marriage) has reduced the reasons to attend church. Though fake “pastors” who only care about personal gain, like Osteen, haven’t done anything to help.

 

Also, Unitarianism is certainly not a branch of Christianity.

I changed the responses for 21 and 22 just for you.
