Sweden has long been known as the “Land of the Free” for its openness and tolerance, but it’s a different story for religious people.
The country’s Christian population has been growing in recent years, and while the Catholic Church still controls a significant share of the population, there are now a lot more people who identify as atheists and agnostics than ever before.
According to a recent Pew survey, only 5% of Swedes consider themselves religious, but there are more people identifying as agnostic, atheist, and spiritual than ever.
It’s a demographic that many would expect to be more tolerant of religious diversity, but Sweden’s religious identity isn’t immune from the social and cultural changes that have seen its population shrink in recent decades.
Sweden has a long history of intolerance and persecution for the “other” and its religious communities, but the current wave of religious conversions has given many people hope that their country may one day be more accepting of atheists and nonbelievers.
The religious conversion wave is part of a larger trend that is slowly but surely transforming the nation, as more and more people are embracing the idea of nonbelief and secularism.
In the wake of the election of the country’s first non-Christian prime minister in 2014, there have been calls for greater integration between the church and the state.
This year, a group of religious groups in Sweden were invited to a national forum where they discussed the idea and its potential impact on the country.
According the International Council for the Promotion of Democracy, Sweden is the first country in Europe to legalize non-traditional marriage and same-sex marriage, and the government has since announced plans to implement laws allowing for the conversion of non-believers to Christianity.
The issue of religious conversion in Sweden is still being hotly debated.
Some argue that Sweden’s laws regarding conversion should be changed, but others argue that the country has the right to protect its religious diversity and culture, and that the issue should be left to the courts.
