Religion down in America

I’ve long said we have an overabundance of fake Catholics in this country, and people seem to be tiring of the lie. According to the American Religious Identification Study, almost twice as many Americans today say they identify with no religion as did 20 years ago.

Catholicism has gained 11 million adherents in the US (mostly through immigration), “but its share of the population fell by about a percentage point” since 1990.

More significant is that Mainline Protestant denominations are hemorraging members.
