A new report published by the General Social Survey says that for the first time ever, ‘No Religion’ is now the most popular choice for Americans, tying Catholicism and evangelicalism.
“‘Religious nones’ as they are called by researchers, are a diverse group made up of atheists, agnostics, the spiritual, and those who are no specific organized religion in particular. A rejection of organized religion is the common thread they share,” CNN reports.
“It is the first time we have seen this. The same questions have been asked for 44 years,” political scientist and Baptist pastor Ryan Burge told CNN.
