Allen Talks About Religion for Press Herald Article on Church Closing

Doug Allen, philosophy professor at the University of Maine, spoke with the Portland Press Herald about Maine religion trends for an article on the closing of the First United Methodist Church in South Portland. Allen said he noticed the state’s relative secularism when he moved to Maine in 1974 and believes it will continue. He also said old churches are in decline and will keep losing members unless they adapt dramatically.
