The median age of Presbyterians is 63.

The Presbyterians are so worried about profiting from businesses that make money by helping Jews avoid being murdered that the Presbyterian Church voted to divest from three American companies.

Of course, Sunnis are shechting Shiites all over the planet, both of them are swimming in the blood of their own daughters anesthesia-free genital mutilation, and gays in Iran are being hung upside down from construction cranes — but at least the Presbyterians are staying focused on what really matters in the world. So that’s one piece of good news.

And of course, the Presbyterian church made clear that it’s divested from businesses that make money helping Jews defend themselves out of “love” for the Jews and a commitment to interfaith dialogue. So that should definitely make us all feel a lot better.

But I noticed some other, even better news today about the Presbyterian church: the median age of people in the Presbyterian church is 63.

The median age for people in the United States is 36.8.  About 90% of Presbyterians are white; the median age for non-Hispanic whites is 42.3

The median age for Jews is 42 (essentially the same as for all non-Hispanic whites). Only 19% of Jews are 65 or over. And the median age for Orthodox Jewish adults is 40; for Jews overall, including those chochems who say they are Jews of no religion and those who are married to non-Jews, it’s 50.

So the good news is that the Presbyterians are actually disappearians. In 20 years they won’t even be herians and it won’t matter what they think, or thought, or whom they pretended to “love” or what they felt the need to divest from in order to remain the noble folks they are — or were.

  1. Demographics is destiny. The Presbyterian Church is aging because Presbyterian kids don't stay with the church. The church has a corporate governance system that ignores congregants in favor of professional (paid) Christians.

  2. You are wrong I love this article but they might uhh I mean will use this as the next al-durrah style Blood Libel, in this case "success", and these 21 million dollars ill be more important than a trillion. We kno that Lebanese billionaire Slim invested more than that in Israel and he is Lebanese, without even a story in the press, we have to realize the press is antsemitic, in real provable terms, and we live in scary times (because Jews are sleeping). Also isn't this vote anti-American right after a recession 3 of America's most important inovative companies?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!!?!?!?!??!

  3. How sad that they don't support GOD's people and yet they support gay marriage which is totally ungodly! . I do believe however that some have broken away from the main church bc of these issues… Thank goodness not all believe this way.

  4. I am Presbyterian, 58 years old, and a friend to Israel. I do not approve of this vote, nor of the sanctioning of same gender marriage in our church. I made my voice heard yesterday at church, and again in letters to my men's study group and to the Presbyterian General Assembly. When you couple the move toward anti-Israelism within the evangelical church with the flood of homosexual acceptance, the overwhelming embracing of mysticism (i.e., contemplative) and welcoming of Catholicism, and a growing hostility toward biblical Christians, it becomes plain to see that the stage is being set to form a one-world harlot “church” of which the Bible speaks.In my church, my religion, we are entering the "end times," of which the Bible speaks. Psalm 122:6
    "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee."

  5. The Sovereign LORD God has even this small group of people in His hand, and if their extinction is the only way to remove their error from the land, so be it! The fact that the vote margin was so slim does tell us that many of their number recognize the error. /we need to pray for them.

  6. And the Catholic church is growing because Catholics will never change their teachings on biblical truths,,and they have their little organizationa
    Like ..Call To Action..trying… They are facing excommunication..

  7. Chaiya Eitan I can only tell you that in my church, many were concerned with both recent"votes." I intend to continue to write the General Assembly and inform them of my concern and request that they supply logic for their actions.

  8. I had been going to a Presbyterian Church until I heard from David Horowitz that it had divested. I wrote a letter to the pastor quoting scripture on what happens to those who harm Israel, handed it to him and asked what he was going to do about it? He said he would continue to pastor his flock. I never went back.
    What an ignorant group of people…but they aren't the only ignorant in the world. But these things aren't made public, especially to the church members

  9. Dick Fincher it would seem that the leadership of your branch of the church is not particularly representative, and neither are some of your fellow members.

    you should expose them for the fools they are and maybe even challenge them for leadership, changing from within by rescinding such motions and rejecting it next time it or anything similar is suggested.

  10. Just bought Caterpillar stock and wrote them to promise to sustain their deserved profits while telling my whole contact list to buy theirs as well as HP's stock. And also asked Israel to stop selling their cell phones, medical advances and security devices to the Church because, after all, tainted by Israeli smarts.
