Men in this corner of the blogosphere complain that Christianity is too feminine. I liked this article by Frederica Mathews-Green. She surveyed one hundred Eastern Orthodox men, most of whom converted as adults, why their church is appealing to guys. I can summarize their answers with a list of adjectives:
Okay, but is the Orthodox sex ratio actually tilted toward men? Here are the percentages of members who are male by religion (I limited the analyis to people born in America to eliminate a male surplus of immigrants):
Percent male (sample size = 43,632)
Eastern Orthodox 47.4
Southern Baptist 47.3
Roman Catholic 43.5
Lutheran--Missouri Synod 42.8
American Lutheran 42.3
United Methodist 40.6
It looks like there is a tendency for more traditional religions to appeal to men.
