And before you get on your high horse about it, I’m just quoting from research conducted by the Pew Research Center. They have conducted global research into religious practices around the world and come to this conclusion, with the only countries bucking this trend being predominantly Muslim. The reason for this is that women are not required to attend mosque to the same extent as men nor to pray as much, so they don’t, and that skews the figures.
There isn’t really any suggestion as to why this might be and of course it’s not an indication that women are more faith-full than men. But I’ve certainly observed in my church attendance how there are frequently more women in the Church community than men, yet often women are excluded from leadership roles
. And in my more cynical moments I’ve wondered what the Church would do if we all up and left. Do you think the men would carry on strongly leading each other?
It’s an interesting read and you can find it here – http://www.pewforum.org/2016/03/22/the-gender-gap-in-religion-around-the-world/
