The first article was written by Al Mohler, and is about teenagers' faith. It was written in 2005, but hey, it is still good reading!
My favorite section is on the 3rd page and reads, "Does this mean that America is becoming more secularized? Not necessarily. These researchers assert that Christianity is either degenerating into a pathetic version of itself or, more significantly, Christianity is actively being colonized and displaced by a quite different religious faith."
The second article was one I found on CNN / Time today. It's about a new thing going around called "debaptism". http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1891230,00.html?cnn=yes
