The Changing American Religious Landscape

Posted Tuesday, March 4, 2008

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

According to a new survey by the Pew Forum of Religion & Public Life, more than 40 percent of Americans have left the faith of their childhood. Where have they gone? Well, the Evangelical movement is seeing its ranks swell, Catholics are holding even, despite a steady tide of departures, and many protestant denominations are swapping members. But why is this happening? And what do these trends actually mean? Whether you practice a faith regularly, religiously, hardly at all, or never, you're part of our changing religious landscape. Tell us your story Tuesday morning. We'll start at 9 a.m.
