Declining Religious Presence in the US

from Schuyler Gordon: Cathy Lynn Grossman from USA Today examines the declining role of faith-based organizations in modern American society:

"When it comes to religion, the USA is now land of the freelancers. The percentage. of people who call themselves in some way Christian has dropped more than 11% in a generation. The faithful have scattered out of their traditional bases: The Bible Belt is less Baptist. The Rust Belt is less Catholic. And everywhere, more people are exploring spiritual frontiers — or falling off the faith map completely."
