Gallup has the results of their annual holiday-season polling regarding Americans’ religious views.
This year finds that 78% of citizens consider themselves to be Christians, while 9% have non-Christian religious beliefs and 13% have no religious beliefs at all.
However, one of the interesting poll results is this: 29% of Americans say that religion “is largely old-fashioned and out of date” and is unable to address the problems of today. That’s up from 19% ten years ago, suggesting that disillusionment with organized religion is growing healthily, even among those who consider themselves religious.
