New study: USA is getting less Christian and less religious

SHAFAQNA – According to Huffington Post, despite claims by some politicians that USA is a “Christian nation,” the share of the population that identifies as Christian has declined significantly in recent years.

New statistics from the Pew Research Center show that between 2007 and 2014, the number of Americans who identify as Christian dropped by almost 8%, from 78.4% to 70.6%.

At the same time, Pew’s 2014 US Religious Landscape Study found that the number of people who are religiously unaffiliated; either atheist, agnostic or simply “nothing in particular” has grown by more than 6%, from 16.1% in 2007 to 22.8% in 2014.
