Pew report: Older U.S. Christians being quickly changed by young ‘nones’

(RNS) — The United States is steadily becoming less Christian plus the amount of people without any faith is increasing.

Those would be the double headlines from the most recent Pew Research report released Thursday (Oct. 17), which will show a dramatic decline in US spiritual practices during the period of 10 years.

The report, an aggregation of yearly governmental surveys that inquire about faith, shows fast alterations in generational attitudes toward religion.

“The price of which Christians are declining is extremely striking.”

It discovers that two-thirds (65%) of Us americans describe on their own as Christians, down from 77per cent in ’09. Moreover it demonstrates the quantity of Us citizens whom state they will have no faith — often called nones — has risen up to 26per cent, up from 17percent about ten years ago.
