HEADLINE: “In U.S., Decline of Christianity Continues at Rapid Pace”
OPENING CONTENT: “The religious landscape of the United States continues to change at a rapid clip. In Pew Research Center telephone surveys conducted in 2018 and 2019, 65% of American adults describe themselves as Christians when asked about their religion, down 12 percentage points over the past decade.”
Who thinks Christians are a Resource …?
The samples from these political polls are not as large as the Landscape Studies (even when all of the political polls conducted in a year are combined), but together, 88 surveys from 2009 to 2019 included interviews with 168,890 Americans.
So let’s slice and dice …
Religious “nones” are growing faster among Democrats than Republicans, though their ranks are swelling in both partisan coalitions … Furthermore, the data shows a wide gap between older Americans (Baby Boomers and members of the Silent Generation) and Millennials in their levels of religious affiliation and attendance … The data suggests that Christians are declining not just as a share of the U.S. adult population, but also in absolute numbers … Catholics no longer constitute a majority of the U.S. Hispanic population … There is still a gender gap in American religion … Religious “nones” now make up fully one-third of Democrats … The religious profile of white Democrats is very different from the religious profile of racial and ethnic minorities within the Democratic Party … The share of U.S. adults who are white born-again or evangelical Protestants now stands at 16%, down from 19% a decade ago …
Is this what it’s all about?
The labels and percentages. The numbers and the affiliations.
Keeps them from seeing Love.
Keeps you from being Love
You think you are persecuted?
You are a Resource.
Just like the
good old days.
