      How would you know what most do? You are only one person.

      Well, I know a lot more about this than you do.

      You have already told us that you go to church, when you do, only to socialize, and that you are a Unitarian Universalist (according to the logo) who doesn't even have a church home. And the Unitarian Universalist Association isn't isn't even a Christian church.

      So, yes, I am one person, but one who has some familiarity with this topic unlike yourself.

      If that were not the case, I still was paying attention sufficiently to have noticed the survey results mentioned in the OP above, which show a strong correlation with my own experience. And you have...what again?.

      Besides which, I did not say that I have the answer for sure. I wrote in that post that I was “confident“ that the reason they go to church was for worship.

      That says that this is my opinion. If you do not like it, vote for something else on the poll, Ruth.
