Linkfest: Americans in Religious Transition

A new study of the religious dominations in the United States finds that Protestants are becoming a minority, Catholicism is becoming heavily Hispanic, and more people are saying they're not affiliated with any religion.

"Americans are not only changing jobs, changing locations, changing spouses, but they're also changing religions on a regular basis," said Luis E. Lugo, the director of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, which conducted the study. "We have nearly half the American public telling us they're something different today than they were as a child, and that's a staggering number. It's such a dynamic religious marketplace, and very competitive."

It's the BPP's Most.
