The counterfeit heroics and incomprehensible use of numbers
Recommend these queer movies and series Marit Halvorsen Hougsnæs Show more

In an editorial in the Newspaper 10. June referred to The church as a "hybrid church", which "stands on shaky feet". It is nice that the church is discussed, but it must be done on the correct basis, and the Newspaper bases its reasoning on the counterfeit heroics and incomprehensible use of numbers.

The first faktafeilen is that "the state pays and has employer responsibilities for bishops, priests, and others in ecclesiastical positions". the

The Norwegian church (at the Council) was transferred arbeidsgiveransvaret for priests, proster, bishops, and other employees in the bispedømmeråd and central administration, 1. January 2017, as the last paragraph of frikoblingsprosessen that started with kirkeforliket in Parliament in 2008. The kirkeansatte who previously worked in the municipalities were transferred to the ecclesiastical fellesrådene 1. January 1997, while kateketene was transferred from the state to fellesrådene in the year 2000.

Ever fewer believe in God

The other faktafeilen is that additions to The church are related to the membership of the church. There are additions to the other religious and spiritual communities that are related to the membership of the church, regardless of needs and activity. The church must, however, document their activities and the specific needs in the annual applications to the state and municipality.

the Newspaper claims that "non-christians (is) the largest group within The church", with reference to the 31,4 percent characterize themselves as "devout christian" and 26,4 per cent as "christian" (valgundersøkelse performed by KIFO, Institute for church, religion and livssynsforskning). It is evident not by the head why those who call themselves "christians" are no longer considered christians when the figures are totalled up.

I love sekularismen Debate

Faith is a difficult units of measure. Simple, but ambiguous categories don't capture the complexity of this (the difference between "christian" and "devout christian" is, for example, not obvious). In a study conducted for the Council in the last year was questions about faith and kirketilhørighet, set in a way that opened for several shades. It gave a different image of membership:

Those who are dismissive of faith, and visit rarely or never: 24%

Those who are open to faith, and/or visit the church several times a year: 54 percent

Those who are believers and visit the church often: 22%.

Both these numbers, and KIFOs numbers tell us that people who know the sense of belonging to the faith and the church, constitute the majority of the members of The Norwegian church. Which also stands on its own legs as a democratic organization and employer, national and local, and that just like any other religious and spiritual communities and many other good causes, receive the majority of their funds from state and municipality.
