How do you think religion will be viewed in the next 50 years?
I don't think fifty years is enough time for any proper change. Even if the views hypothetically "change", they really aren't. I mean, laws have changed to allow fairness and equality to the female, colored, and "queerly" sexual oriented. However, these people are still being shamed and mistreated for those "flaws" today, despite how long the change has been around. Even if religon becomes "less important" or "less influential" in fifty years time, there will still be many people who will reject the change given to them for the better and ultimately keep things the same as they were.
