Sterling silver cross necklaces for men are one of the most popular of all types of necklaces for men.  That surprises me a little because there are tons of different types of necklaces for men.
Additionally, America is like the western European decline in Christianity.  More and more people are leaving organized Christian religion.  But like I said, cross necklaces for men and the most popular type of silver necklaces for men.
Of course, many who are leaving organized religion are the type that are going off in their own direction. They still read the Bible and try to live Christian lives. 
People at Christian schools are concerned about the trend in Christianity of people leaving organized religion.  But we know that not all of them are leaving Christianity entirely. Is there any other proof that Christianity still lives in the lives of Christian men?
While my idea is not scientific, it leans to economics a little.  The fact that the cross necklace for men is the most popular genre of necklaces for men tells me that men are still very involved in the Christian faith.
