For the first time "No Religion" has topped a survey of Americans' religious identity, according to a new analysis by a political scientist. The non-religious edged out Catholics and evangelicals in the long-running General Social Survey.

 

Ryan Burge, a political scientist at Eastern Illinois University and a Baptist pastor, found that 23.1% of Americans now claim no religion.
 
Catholics came in at 23.0%, and evangelicals were at 22.5%.

:clap3: Italy is experiencing a similar situation with young people not caring about religion (either atheism/agnosticism or unaffiliated Christian), the church is a gross, corrupted institution we shoud all abandon.

I know you say it in jest, but it's actually true. I think "No religion" will be in first place until about 2070, and then Islam will take over in 1st place.

Good but now we need the rest of the world to abandon it too.

Europe has already started, as for the rest of the world you can’t expect that now. Westerners took most of their resources and had a whole enlightenment era before the secularisation hundreds of years ago. You can’t expect the countries they took the resources from to be at the same pace.

Agreed. Religion has started more wars, conflict, and contributed to discrimination than anything else.

So you’re saying non-Western countries are backwards? :eatpopcorn:
