A new report on global religious identity shows that while Christians and Muslims make up the two largest groups, those with no religious affiliation—including atheists and agnostics—are now the third-largest “religious” group in the world.
As the nation marked the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, almost six in ten Americans agreed that Muslims are the subject of discrimination—more than members of other major religious groups, according to a new survey.
A massive new study of the American religious landscape shows that Protestants are losing their majority share of the nation’s population and that the country’s broad religious diversity is accompanied by great shifts in religious affiliation.
New England is heavily Catholic, the South is predominantly evangelical, the West Coast has the highest proportion of religiously unaffiliated folks. If you’re a Midwesterner, you’re living in the region that best reflects the religious diversity of the United States.
