Farewell, Majority Status

In a blog post today, Russell Moore mentions a new study by the Pew Forum that finds that for the first time in its history, the United States does not have a Protestant majority.

Two sentences from Moore particularly caught my attention:

Frankly, we should be more concerned about the loss of a Christian majority in the Protestant churches than about the loss of a Protestant majority in the United States.
The American Protestant majority is is over and to that  I say, “good riddance.” Now let’s pray for something new-like a global Christian majority, on earth as it is in heaven.
