The largest religious group in the US? People who don't believe in anything.
· Jan 25, 2024 ·

The average American is more likely to not believe in anything than belong to a religion according to the latest Pew poll.

From NPR:

When Americans are asked to check a box indicating their religious affiliation, 28% now check 'none.'

A new study from Pew Research finds that the religiously unaffiliated - a group comprised of atheists, agnostic and those who say their religion is "nothing in particular" - is now the largest cohort in the U.S. They're more prevalent among American adults than Catholics (23%) or evangelical Protestants (24%).

Now, if you add the Catholics and Protestants together as a Christian block, they're still ahead, but it's not even 50% of the country anymore.

We are now living in post-Christian America.

And NPR can hardly contain its joy!

Gregory Smith at Pew was the lead researcher on the study, titled "Religious 'Nones' in America: Who They Are and What They Believe."

He says the growth of Nones could affect American public life.

"We know politically for example," Smith says, "that religious Nones are very distinctive. They are among the most strongly and consistently liberal and Democratic constituencies in the United States."

And that could change electoral politics in the coming decades.

Yes! If we just destroy God and make man hopeless then they'll start worshipping the state and voting for Democrats! It's all coming together!

This is an actual real video of the NPR newsroom reporting this story:

The "Nones" are a bunch of lonely - often unmarried - young white people.

If there's one "positive" it's that they aren't reproducing like religious folks are.

Oh, and they're captured by leftist politics and statism, because it turns out that you'll worship something as your god no matter how hard you identify as a "none."

At first glance, Nones appear to be evenly divided be gender. But digging deeper into the data shows that men are significantly more likely to say they're atheist or agnostic whereas women are more likely to describe their religion as 'nothing in particular.'

Smith says that's consistent with other research as well, which shows, "women tend to be more religious on average than men."

There's a big unreached people group in the United States. The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Pray for the Lord of the harvest to send out workers!

It's never too late to bring them to Christ.
