    New study finds ¼ of Americans are Nonreligious.

    BREAKING: The nonreligious are now the largest religious demographic in the country.
    “This is a wake-up call to lawmakers and politicians across the country. The rapid growth of the nonreligious is among the most drastic and consequential changes to the American political landscape in recent history. It is time for both political parties to take notice of this trend and rewrite their playbooks.” -Larry T. Decker, Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America

    1. Praise Jesus, let it rise.

    2. The largest jump is seen in the youngest age group…

    This is a big deal. If 39% of people under 30 are non-religious (and they remain that way in the future), it suggests that Nones will dominate the landscape in a generation.

    4. It is always good to hear when people are waking up.

    Let’s keep it going!

    5. Sadly though….

    As an atheist, I can’t hope the bad people people rot in hell.

     

    Speaking of hell, has anyone seen Satan lately?

    6. My, how things have changed!

    When I became an atheist in the late 1970s, I was the only atheist that I personally knew. I didn’t meet another atheist for ~five years. I suspect that I knew some others, but they were laying low. Now, atheism is rather mundane. And that’s a good thing, imo.
