Shall the Religious Inherit?

 

Religious identification and church attendance is in steep decline in the West. But it turns out that this trend coupled with other currents such as the drop in fertility rates in the West and global migration, could see the forces of religious fundamentalism dramatically alter the world as we know it.
In fact as the population of the Western world ages and birth rates continue to fall, religious fundamentalists are on course to take over the world through demography.
