Study shows Americans turning away from religion

The latest findings of the American Religious Identification Survey find that 34 million adult Americans -- that's almost one in five of us -- are now nonreligious. The Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation was quick to leap on the fact that they are now in the majority. The findings may not rival the "Great Awakening," but the United States is clearly in the midst of a "Gradual Awakening," and catching up with Europe's embrace of secularism, the group notes in a press release.
