https://www.axios.com/2024/03/29/americans-lose-religious-affiliation-survey

Americans increasingly are calling themselves "unaffiliated" with any religion — or rejecting religion altogether — at a time when influential Republicans are leaning into Christian nationalism to shape public policies, a new survey finds.

Why it matters: The survey found that 26% of Americans now consider themselves unaffiliated with a religion. That's up 5 percentage points from 2013, and reflects a widening gap between how citizens and lawmakers see religion's role in society.

>The GOP is dominated by white evangelicals who have successfully pushed to limit abortion, ban books and restrict some LGBTQ+ rights. But the general public — especially younger Americans — is rapidly moving away from religions that endorse such policies.
>Just a slim majority of Americans (53%) now say that religion is important in their lives, down from 72% in 2013, the survey by the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute says.
>The findings suggest that Republicans who focus on evangelical priorities — such as former President Trump, who's now hawking Bibles, and House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), who flies a flag favored by Christian nationalists outside his office — are preaching to a loyal but dwindling audience.

The big picture: Among Christian groups, Catholics as a whole continue to lose more members than they gain — and are seeing the largest declines in affiliation of any religious group.

>In 2023, 18% of white Americans said they grew up as Catholics, but one-third of them said they no longer identify as members of their childhood faith.
>12% of Hispanic Americans said they grew up as Catholics; one-third of them also said they no longer identify as such.
>>
Yes, but: The percentage of Americans who identify as white evangelical Protestants appears to have stabilized after years of decline.

>Black Protestants and Jewish Americans have the highest retention rates of all religious groups.

Overall, the survey found that one in 10 Americans in 2023 reported having grown up without a religious identity.

>Another 18% of Americans said they became unaffiliated after growing up in a particular religious tradition.

The intrigue: The jump in unaffiliated Americans comes as many say they no longer believe in their initial religion's teachings — or disagree with a religion's stance against LGBTQ+ people in particular.

>Among unaffiliated Americans younger than 30, "60% cite the treatments of LGBTQ as a reason they stop going to church," PRRI CEO Melissa Deckman tells Axios.
>The rise of Christian nationalism and GOP state legislators pushing anti-LGBTQ+ laws also is leading young people to turn away from organized religion, she said.
>Members of Congress are more Christian — and more religious — than the American public by wide margins, according to an analysis of data reviewed by Axios last year.

The GOP play up the religious part for their base, as the sparsely populated fly over states have a lot of voting power in the stupidly outdated electoral college.
It's all BS on their part, as according to Madison Cawthorn, they are all cocaine using sex maniacs(as is their glorious leader[the sex pervert part anyway]).

How to instantly prove you're retarded.

>>1283130
OH no, a Republican.
The only way that they stay relevant is the electoral college, as they lose the POPULAR VoTE EVERY 4 YRS.
Ma & Pa kettle don't get to tell be if I can kill my baby or not.

>>1283133
Wow further proof of retardation. Keep whining, bitch.

The Christian right is extremely insidious, they not only believe everyone should respect their practices, but they should be allowed to force them onto the entire country.

The latest attempt by Republicans to do a national abortion ban exposes that.

Pissbaby Demosharts are mad they can't allow millions of illegals into the country to take over the US again?
Man. Maybe if apportionment wasn't fucked by every turdbag in CA being an illegal immigrant we could talk about it, but every one who lives in CA is an illegal immigrant.
>>
>>1283137
>every turdbag in CA being an illegal immigrant
Republicans make it hard for them to become legal, because they need cheap labor to keep the rest of us in line, and to pick their strawberries to top their cereal.
Republicans have a quota of illegals allowed in, and when the quota is surpassed, usually due to the US meddling in 3rd world countries, they get worried.

why are you spouting Nancy Pelosi's "we need them to pick apples" and blaming a republican? Same old democrats.. They do love them slaves...

Based Republicans

>>1283152
>blaming a republican
Democrats allow the slaves in with the hope of becoming legal if they vote Dem.
Republicans pretend to be outraged but allow the slaves in
>>
>>1283159
>Democrats allow the slaves in with the hope of becoming legal
At which point they wouldn't be slaves any more than the rest of us.

So Dems want immigrants and Republicans want illegal immigrants.
>>
>>1283164
stop being fake retarded.
The republicans want anyone who wants to be a citizen to go through the same legal channels people have always gone through. Why? Because there are people who want to destroy and despoil this land and its people.
The democrats have facilitated encouraged and promoted the breaking of the law and national security in some stupid "we gonna import more votes!" ponzi scheme which is entirely funded by globohomo interests and stolen taxpayer money. What they dont realize is they are part of a fascist population razing dictatorship hellbent on the United States destruction exactly similar to the Nazis they commonly villify. They are the useful idiots and have no idea what their devil masters have in store when they build their "new world".

That question was answered 200 years ago, dipshit.

Slavery was legal back then too, times change where all votes should be equal.
>>
>>1283230
They are equal, shit for brains.
If you want to ask that your vote be worth less that is your prerogative. Just dont drag anyone else that doesn't want that down with you.
>>
>>1283230
Illogical in a Republic of free states.
But once again, if you want to deport all the illegals and fix the apportionment issue millions of illegals are causing, then maybe we can talk.

Babies don't deserve to be murdered. Unless they're vaxxed, in which case, off to the gulag with both the baby and the mother
>>
>>1283233
They are not equal. The electoral college proves that since certain states are just outright ignored. If popular vote was the deciding factor, the president would have to go to every state.

>>1283234
Whataboutism. Ignored.

finally, their eyes are opening that the churches are greedy
>>
>>1283242
>If popular vote was the deciding factor, the president would have to go to every state
Are you fucking retarded? The answer is yes.
The president would only have to go to CA, NY, and IL if we're speaking of campaigning, not that in person campaigning is necessary these days.

DNC of Fallbrook kibbuts is full of shit Catholics will get in line and protoestants will monarch feudalism

Sorry Zimbabwe about the Rhodesia USA Dixie Carthage baptists Spartacus USA being Rome then Islam border for Europe who ruined Zimbabwe health but I’m not paying for all that

I got Africa off the hook for gay marriage, dnc and kkk Obama martyr method was force gay marriage into Obama presidency then steal African capital with cheap martyr like jfk, so dnc pays for the gay marriage and dnc pys for the COVID’s and spilts the bill with trump voters and 2004 bush 43 pays for market share losses that are more than 2004 bush 43 donors sponsors and voters are worth

Yes trump and the dnc did COVID’s to kill Christianity and hetero only marriage support around the globe and the dnc had trump since 8/2018

Says the socialist who wants all the money with zero effort.
The church's charity has done more for people than any government program.
Maybe real socialism is going to church and donating a small sum?

Yes, dumb fuck, they are still equal.
