Objectivity 3.3 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.9

The Pew Research Center revealed Americans who do not identify with a religion hit an all-time high, and those who identify with Christianity dropped to an all-time low. According to Pew, 29% of U.S. adults consider themselves non-religious. That’s a six-point jump from just five years ago. Americans who ID as Christians dropped to 63%. That’s a 12-point fall from 2011. The ratio began to noticeably change in 2007 when Christians outnumbered the non-religious 78% to 16%.
