College no longer best place to lose your faith?

According to an article in Touchstone November 2007 (and not archived here on line yet), "The 'spiritual marketplace'" on college campuses is particularly lively, Missouri State University's John Schmalzbauer, co-investigator of the national Study of Campus Ministries, told a meeting of the Association for the Sociology of Religion." Declines on campus have been reversed, and in fact, other recent studies have found that "fewer students who go to college lose their faith compared with those who don't go to college."

Could that be why atheists and theocrats are now buzzing like angry bees? Neither has any interest in a "spiritual marketplace".
