Poland sees rise in secularism
December 15, 2010
Poland is seeing a rise in secularism, The New York Times reports, and the Sunday Mass attendance rate has fallen to 41% nationwide and 20% in Warsaw and Krakow.
The Times adds:
Antichurch sentiment has run so hot that one of the most popular politicians in the country, Janusz Palikot, started a political party based largely on an anticlerical platform. He said that the national divide tended to be generational, with older citizens more closely aligned with the church, but that it was impossible to discern distinct boundaries.
