Also, with information so readily available online, many are open to leaving religious ties in support of organizations like the Secular Coalition for America, “who serve atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers and other nontheistic.”
A Pew report indicated that there is an increase of more Americans not associated with a religion, and are embracing more secular culture forms found throughout Europe. The study showed 56 million Americans are not affiliated with a particular religion between 2007 and 2014. Pew conducted surveys of those described themselves as agnostics or atheists.
Those numbers grew from 16 percent to 23 percent, while Christian followers moved to 70.6 percent from 78.4 percent. People following Catholicism dropped three percent, and mainline Protestants declined. The Millennial generation also has shown less interest for religion, then previous generations.
“As the Millennial generation enters adulthood, its members display much lower levels of religious affiliation, including less connection with Christian churches, than older generations,” according to the Pew Research Center.
Christianly is still the dominate religion. America's changing religious landscape can be read on the Pew Research Center's site.
