This may be good news could be A there lot of minnlian Christians that don't like their parent church they forming their own or bad news is they become atheist
Washington (AFP) - The United States is becoming a little less Christian, and a little more unaffiliated to any faith, a major study on the nation's changing religious landscape suggested Tuesday.
"The United States remains home to more Christians than any other country in the world," with 70.6 percent of its population, or 173 million adults, identifying as Christian last year, the Pew Research Center said.
But that figure is down from 2007 when 78.4 percent called themselves Christian, Pew said in its 200-page study, titled "America's Changing Religious Landscape."
The decline is seen across many segments of American society, including whites, Latinos, women, men and those with or without a college education.
But it is particularly marked among younger American, and concerns Roman Catholics as much as mainstream Protestants.
Survey: Americans Becoming Less Christian, Less Religious
Truth Revolt 5.12.2015
The days where America can be classified as a "Christian nation" are rapidly coming to an end. On Tuesday, the Pew Research Center released a new survey indicating that Americans have steadily become less religious, particularly Christian, in recent years, dropping by a total eight percentage points, from 78.4 percent to 70.6 percent between 2007 and 2014.
Good news for atheists and agnostics though, because those demographics have enjoyed a growth of more than six percentage points, from 16.1 percent in 2007 to 22.8 percent in 2014. According to the study, there are now approximately 56 million religiously unaffiliated adults living in the United States, more than either Catholics and mainline Protestant denominations.
Surveying over 35,000 adults by phone, the study showed that millennials make up the highest percentage of irreligious, trailed by Gen X'ers who have been leaving their faiths as well; 25 percent to be exact, a four point jump from 2007.
"As the Millennial generation enters adulthood, its members display much lower levels of religious affiliation, including less connection with Christian churches, than older generations," Pew reports.
The report also indicated that they will not be coming back.
