Religious Decline and Polarization
"Is Canada Becoming More Religiously Polarized?”
"bag lunch" discussion: Location: TBA
Leading sociologist of religion Reginald Bibby has argued in his most recent book that Canada is becoming increasingly polarized religiously. There is a growing number of Canadians who reject religion, even while there is a fairly stable number of religiously committed Canadians. The gap between them seems to be growing. However, I will argue that the available evidence is more consistent with continued religious decline than with polarization.
