Religion is becoming more popular in South America, Africa and Asia, as it appeals to oppressed people, which is why missionaries go to these areas in order to gain new "recruits. It is an economic concern and the churches appeal to those in situations of poverty, as it offers them "false hope." Christians in those areas have more children for economic reasons, as they are required for labor, and there is a high rate of infant mortality.
It is in countries with high levels of secondary education which are becoming more secular, as they are able to research and learn for themselves about what religion really is.--in the case of christianity, it is nothing but badly written Bronze Age mythology.
