Liberals And Young People Are Abandoning Religion
Liberals And Young People Are Abandoning Religion I thought these charts, from fivethirtyeight.com, were interesting. The first shows the growing abandonment of religion by American liberals in each age group. It aligns with the generational abandonment of religion I have previously reported (as each generation has more religiously non-affiliated people that the generation before it).
The second chart shows the abandonment of religion by each political group. The liberals are by far the largest group giving up their religion. This doesn't really surprise me, since liberals want fact rather than magical thinking. Moderates and Conservatives showed some increase in religious non-affiliation, but not nearly as much a among liberals.
