At nation's churches, guys are few in the pews
Churches nationwide are fretting and sweating to reel men into their sanctuaries on Sundays.

Women outnumber men in attendance in every major Christian denomination, and they are 20% to 25% more likely to attend worship at least weekly.

Although every soul matters, many pastors say they need to power up on reaching men if the next generation of believers, the children, will find the way to faith. So hundreds of churches are going for a "guy church" vibe, programming for a stereotypical man's man. ...

But the legal movement to nonprofit incorporation (bad though it is) came later than the decline in theology. It is true though: most churches are simply populist businesses.

I just don't think these people get it. Not being "man friendly" is far from being the church's problem.

When "church" ceases to be the lucritive business with a pious facade, this and other problems may take care of themselves. Step one is dropping the 501-c-3 tax exemption and dissolving the corporation. Since nobody is willing to do that because of the large wealth liquidation it requires problems like these will continue, and the egg-heads will continue to scratch their heads and search for better ways to market the product.

As opposed to the usual pragmatic theories, I posit a philosophical one: Neo-orthodoxy argues that Christianity is full of contradictions, & is hence irrational, like the stereotypical woman is supposed to be. This has trickled down from seminaries to the churches, which might explain the popular hostility to theology & system, & deprecation of "head knowledge" in countless sermons. Why should "real men" waste their time with such a "blind" faith?
