The other day I was reading Michal Moore's book, Stupid white men. In one chapter he said the women ratio is out numbering the men, and then going on on about how men deserve to be whipped out and all. But then I was thinking about the women ratio in the future and what it'll do to Christianity with in the next 40 years or so. I'm thinking that it'll come to three conclusions:

1. It'll raise the lesbians to a large majority in the world.

2. Or that Christianity will have to adopt a watered down version Mormonism of having the maximum of two wives.

3. Mormonism will dominate Christianity in the western world.

I'm willing to bet that at least one of these events will happen, if not all three. I do notice that Christianity constantly changes it's laws on marriage all the time. God is always there to seal a marriage but never around to bless the divorce papers. So sense Christianity is always backing out it's promises, it wouldn't surprise me that Christianity would steel this concept too. Sense they've already helped stolen land form natives, encouraged slavery and torcher, (indorsed it actually), and create generations of genocidal war. I'm actually surprised that they haven't stolen the mormonism doctrine yet.

Mormonism is full of shit. Golden tablets in some dude's backyard that only he could interpret and then lost? Gimme a break. The destiny of Christianity is the dustbin like all of the other religions that came before it.

Hi Vince, I do think that quite a lot of people would be somewhat angered by your remark about how "it'll raise lesbians to a large majority in the world". This implies that women "become" lesbian due to a lack of a suitable male partner. That of course is not really the case.

If women do have a slumber party and there are no men around, the evening does not usually end up in steamy lesbian sex... trust me, I have hours of boring video footage to prove it.

Anyways, women have always been a majority compared to men, what's the issue there? Why would this cause a problem in the future, why not now? Why for Christianity, and why not for Hinduism? The real problem seems to arise in China btw, where the "one child policy" has wrecked the country's demographic.

Yeah I was gonna comment about the lesbian thing too.  Historically, there have always been a lot more women in the church than men in general.  Just because there might be a shortage of men, does not mean that women will begin to become lesbians.  Sexual orientation is biological and neurological, and the amount of people in one gender or another, has nothing to do with it.

I also don't think that Mormonism will dominate mainstream Christianity.  Most Christians see Mormonism as a cult, that is separate from the Church.

Well let me make one thing clear. I'm not against lesbians, Ok? In fact I know two that I used to work with and there are good friends of mine. All I saying is in the next 40 years or so, you're gonna see a change in christianity that will reroute their so called "morals" to fit into society.  Think of it like this; If 12 people crash landed on a island, 2 men 10 women for the next 30 years, you think that there's not going to be an orgy?

Christianity will change. It always has.

But (as stated by the other good folk here) women have always outnumbered me. And women tend to be more religious than men (not sure what the correlation or cause-effect is, but atheists are disproportionately male).

It's less about demographics than it is about progress - the more we learn, the smaller the space needed for magical answers. I should add that I don't believe this change will be automatic - education in this country is under serious attack, and as a result we could potentially move toward more religion instead of less if we're not careful. But either way, christianity will continue to morph over time.

Oh - and the plane crash on an island? Orgy? Nah. Too busy scrounging food and shelter.

I think you missed the point I was making. On an Island for 30 years, Ok that's plenty of time.  But we are in agreement as for christianty changing the cores of marriage?

Comment by Bob MacVay on July 10, 2012 at 1:49am

Yea Vince, the 2 men will kill each other fighting over the 10 women and the island will be renamed lesbian island with the women living happily ever after.(no men to fight over) Quite a fairy tale man!  I think you have an overly simplistic view of the sexual orientation and population distribution figures.

Comment by Cristynfaye on July 10, 2012 at 3:37am

I don't mean to sound contrary or argumentative, but I think you're missing a big point.  There are *already* twice as many women in the Church than there are men, and that's been the case for quite some time.  I think that people end up dating/marrying people outside of the church, or just remain single, rather than just deciding to hook up with people of the same sex.  Because that's not how people work in real life.  I understand the point you are trying to make, and there are some instances where people turn to the same gender for sex- such as in prison- when the opposite sex isn't available.  But like I said, a lot of Christians already date non believers, or they decide to remain single.  I have been in the church for a VERY long time, and the only instances that I have ever heard of with people dating the same sex, are when those people are already gay.  You don't just go "well, there's no good Christian men, guess I'll just find me a nice Christian lady"....that's not how Christian minds work.  It's not how anyone's minds work, because as you must know, you can't choose to be gay.

However, I do think that there is bound to be a shift in the Church's view of homosexuality in general.  Many Christians are becoming more accepting, and I think that in a few years all the anti-gay people in the Church will be the minority.

Christianity in the future will be a novelty, and in the future of the furture, it will cease to exist.

Comment by Karen Lollis on July 10, 2012 at 10:04am

After 30 years, how many of them are going to be of an age where an orgy is the passtime of choice? Women in nursing homes far outnumber men, and like Cristynfay pointed out, women don't turn lesbian just because there aren't suitable men available.

Yes, the christian view of marriage will change. It's already changing. But not for the reasons you cite.
