Perhaps Shiflett should inform the President of this fact!

Especially since he is also author of Christianity on Trial and is a member of the White House Writers Group.

Quote::-
"Shiflett’s instincts as a reporter led him to see a big story behind the membership decline in liberal denominations.

The United Church of Christ was abandoned by 14.8 percent of its members, while the American Baptist Churches USA were reduced by 5.7 percent.
the paragraph is from A New Exodus? Americans are Exiting Liberal Churches.
