Religious America in Flux

18 Dec

Apropos my previous post on the Crystal Cathedral and the decline of evangelicalism, here’s a post from my colleague John Hubers on The Washington Post‘s assessment of the 2010 U.S. Religious Census. His title for the post highlights some of the noteworthy trends:

Lots of atheists, more Muslims, fewer Christians and Jews: this is the new America | A Center of Christian-Muslim Engagement for Peace and Justice: News and Views.

    Thanks for posting this, Doug. The county denominational map looks similar to previous ones produced jointly by the National Council of Churches and the Glenmary Res. Center, except that the predominantly Catholic areas and Mormon areas appear to have expanded from about 20-30 years ago, and the predominantly Methodist and Lutheran areas appear to have shrunk. A lot of other studies point to the general decline in the Christian affiliated percentage of the population, and the rise of persons who claim no religious preference.
