American Faithful

More than a quarter of adult Americans have left the faith of their childhood to join another religion or no religion, according to a new survey of religious affiliation by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

While how many of the rest actually made a conscious decision to stick with their childhood religion still remains in the dark, it can't be higher than half. That means that regarding religion, we've improved to about a third of Americans actually thinking for themselves. It's bittersweet, at best.

Read it.
