Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Christianity continues to decline among US adults
according to a Pew Research Center survey released Tuesday.

Currently, self-identified Christians of all types make up about 63% of the population. This includes Protestants, Catholics, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Orthodox Christians. That number is down 12 points from 75% in 2011, a continuation of a downward spiral in the 21st century.

According to the study, about three-in-10 adults (29%) identify as religious "nones," people who describe themselves as atheists, agnostics or "nothing in particular" when asked about their religious identity
The decline in Protestantism is equal between evangelicals - believers who describe themselves as born again - and non-evangelical, with both sects seeing a 6-point decline. In contrast, Catholics have held steady after suffering a downward trend between 2007 and 2014. Gorski believes immigration is holding that number firm.
