You know I wasn't suggesting Mike attends church. PeriodThat's only a partial answer to one of the questions (if I assume that "the mother's life is in danger" means that there is a significant change of the actual pregnancy killing her, for medical reasons). Please go point by point and be thorough, even if your answer appears to be consistent with your first statement, as there are many nuances. I'd like to understand better.

I think you know what I meant. I worded it that way on purpose. I'm a southerner. I say "you" sometimes where a northerner would say "one".
But again, I think you knew what I meant. Just like I know you don't really mean "most theists do not attend church""
No, I really didn't know what you mean if it wasn't what you said. And I hope you don't "know that I didn't mean it", because I also DID really mean that most theists do not attend church. The only confusion could be what exactly defines church attendance, and I would say that going 1-2 times a year does not mean that you attend church. Including that group is the only way you reach a majority in this country among Christians. It's not even close among many other religions in this country, and generally speaking in most other countries.
And do remember that these already low rates are all self reported, and self reported values will always be skewed significantly high due to the reporting individual's guilt and self-perception of being religious. Studies have shown that the self reported rates may be in excess of 50% higher than reality.
Most theists do not attend church.
My mistake on the assumption on your other point.
