Good to see that graph.....hope its fairly accurate.

From Twitter

Church attendance is falling. But hey, you don't have to believe in something that's true, just because it's true right? You can believe in anything you want to believe, even if it's entirely made up, just because it makes you feel better to think it.

If the 15-year trend continues, the lines will cross in 7 or 8 years.

To make change happen, the Nones will have to engage politically.

Comment by Stephen on May 11, 2018 at 10:28am

Nice post-Doone. I wonder if we'll see a time when the nones will overlap the Protestants. That would just about change everything in the  US.

From ABC News re Kevin Drum

No Religion

As the share of Protestants has declined, the number of adults expressing no religious affiliation has risen from 12 percent in 2003 to 21 percent of all adults in 2017. That includes 3 percent who say they’re atheists, 3 percent agnostic and 15 percent who say they have no religion. The proportions were similar 15 years ago.

The largest shifts during this 15-year period include 16-point increases among young adults (age 18 to 29) and political liberals. The smallest changes have occurred among Republicans, conservatives and blacks (+4 points in each group) as well as older Americans, +5 points.

Having no religious affiliation is most prevalent among 18- to 29-year-olds, at 35 percent, vs. 13 percent among those age 50 and older. It’s also higher among men than women (25 vs. 17 percent), among college graduates vs. those without a degree (25 vs. 20 percent), and among whites and Hispanics than among blacks (22 and 20 percent vs. 15 percent).

It differs among political and ideological groups as well. Thirty-five percent of liberals report no religious affiliation, compared with 21 percent of moderates and 12 percent of conservatives. Twenty-three and 25 percent of Democrats and independents, respectively, don’t report a religion, dropping to 10 percent of Republicans. Indeed the non-religious are something of a political counterpoint to evangelical white Protestants; 67 percent of those with no religious affiliation supported Hillary Clinton in 2016.

From Kevin Drum, USA non religionists catching up to Protestants at least

If you want to understand why evangalical Christians have been so willing to prostitute their faith in service of Donald Trump, this poll from ABC News tells most of the story:


The decline has been pretty evenly spread among young and old; college and high school grads; men and women; liberals and conservatives; and both mainstream and evangelical Protestants. However, the decline is much larger among whites than among blacks or Hispanics. And the share of people who self-ID as Catholics has stayed steady.

The first decade of the 21st century was a tough one for evangelical Protestants. Their numbers fell, their political influence waned, their most popular leaders died off or retired, and they got badly crushed on the issue of gay rights and gay marriage. By 2012 the movement was in pretty sorry shape, and it only got worse after Obergefell.

Then Donald Trump came along and threw them a lifeline. Sure, he was a philanderer, a faker, a liar, an avatar of mammon, and very plainly not a religious man himself. But Trump made evangelicals the same offer he makes with everyone: he’d adopt their causes as his own and fight for them publicly, but only in return for unconditional public support. Maybe it was a devil’s bargain, but they took it. If you had lost 20 percent of your followers in the past decade and watched helplessly as modern culture steamrolled nearly everything you believe in, you might have too.

Two Islamic Terrorists Will Be Hanged for Slaughter of Bangladeshi Professor

Eight men were eventually charged with the crime. All were associated with the indigenous terrorist group Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (while there are various spellings of the group, it’s known by the initials JMB).

Three of the men were killed in unrelated gunfights and raids in 2016. The other five were convicted. Of those five, three face life in prison while two, we learned today, will be hanged.

Shariful Islam, a former student at Siddique’s university, is one of the men scheduled for execution, though he’s “currently on the run,” according to local news reports.
It’s delayed justice for Siddique, but we’ve seen other alleged atheists in Bangladesh slaughtered with no justice whatsoever. At least law enforcement appears to be taking these crimes seriously. The more that happens, the less likely it becomes that we see more of these cowardly attacks on innocent people.
