Huge No.of Young Christians Leaving the Church; Many Find Church Boring, Judgmental, Outdated

The Huffington Post website reports today (October 10, 2011) that a new study finds a plethora of young Christians are leaving the church today, because they view churches as judgmental, overprotective, exclusive, and unfriendly towards doubters.

The Bama Group studied 1,296 young adults who were current or former churchgoers.

Researchers found that 59 percent of Christians leave the church life -- either permanently or for an extended period of time -- after the age of 15. One in three Christians said, "Church is boring."

About 40 percent of the 18- to 29-year-old Catholics said the church's doctrine on sexuality and birth control is "out of date."
