Andrew Fiala, a professor of philosophy and director of The Ethics Center at Fresno State, wrote recently that the growth of religiously unaffiliated Americans requires a new look at faith in our nation.
“There are more nones now than there are Catholics, Evangelicals or any other single faith group,” says Fiala. “The nones are growing fast, while other affiliations are declining.”
“For young people growing up in a liberal culture, religion is quaint and old-fashioned. The growth of non-religion is a youth movement,” continues Fiala. “The Pew Center reports that across the globe, people under 40 attend church less frequently and are more likely to admit that they are not religious. ”
