Millennials Might Be Least-Religious Generation

A study led by a San Diego State University professor found that millennial’s might be the least-religious generation in the U.S. in six decades, and maybe in the history of the country. The SDSU psychology professor and her team found that 75 percent of high school seniors say religion is not important to them. She suggested that the decline in religious activity is linked to a rising individualism in American culture. The study comes on the heels of research released two weeks ago by the Pew Research Center that showed the portion of U.S. population as a whole that’s not affiliated with any religion has climbed from around 16 percent in 2007 to nearly 23 percent last year. Christianity’s share of the country’s population dropped from 78 percent to under 71 percent.  Read the article here.
