Check out this story in USA Today: http://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/2009-03-09-american-religion-ARIS_N.htm

A few highlights:

* The percentage. of people who call themselves in some way Christian has dropped more than 11% in a generation.

* So many Americans claim no religion at all (15%, up from 8% in 1990), that this category now outranks every other major U.S. religious group except Catholics and Baptists.

My mom told me about this yesterday. Fantastic. I read a great quote on a website. It had a picture of a flock of sheep and it read, "Blind faith. Because thinking is hard." Gotta love it. LOL
