Kirk Franklin

Kirk Franklin knew creating an album titled “Losing My Religion” might shock people, but he thought it was an important conversation to have in a society where church attendance is on the decline.

The 46-year-old minister of music told ABC News 13 in Houston, Texas, why he believes his decision to spark the controversial conversation concerning religion was needed.

“When you look at the decline of church attendance in America, or when you look at the decline of millennials that are not going to church in America, you want to have the conversation that a lot of times people are hit more with religion and rules and the systems than they are with the love of God and having a personal relationship with Christ,” Franklin said while on his “The 20 Years In One Night Tour.”

In promoting his 12th studio album Losing My Religion, Franklin was bold in his stance on the matter of religion.
