Religiously Unaffiliated Growing In America

You see that green bar?

The freakishly large one that’s on the left side of the poster below?

The one representing religiously unaffiliated millennials?

The one that’s crushing all the smaller bars below it?

See it?

Now pat yourself on the back.

The graphic comes from the Public Religion Research Institute. You’ll notice that it also undermines the evangelical claim that they’re doing better with younger generations than progressive Christians. You’ll see that’s not true. In fact, the evangelical drop is more precipitous than the mainline drop — they’ve also got further to fall.

    AS A LIFELONG PREACHERS KID,I FIND THIS MOST ENCOURAGING. I DROPPED OUT OF THE CHURCH TREADMILL 22YEARS AGO. AFTER 38YEARS OF TREADMILL CHURCH GOING AND AFTER THE 8YEARS OF GEORGE WALKER BUSH DURING WHICH MY RESPECT FOR THE ECCLESIASTICAL TYRANNY OF EVANGELISM WAS ABSOLUTELY AND TOTALLY DESTROYED!
