An interesting article in the NY Times, today, about adults not hewing to their parents' faith. Came with a nice picture too:

Bottom line is that the unaffiliated make up the forth largest group in the country. (The Times called it "religious group," scare quotes included.)
According to the article, fundagelicals that change their affiliation, tend to go to another fundagelical church. Protestants, on the whole, however, are taking a hit, and the Baptists are losing the most within that group. But for Catholic immigrants, the RC looks to be heading for a crash-and-burn.
Do wish the Times had found a more elegant way to describe the unaffiliated.
Oh well.
