The recent decrease in religious beliefs and behaviors is largely attributable to the “nones” – the growing minority of Americans, particularly in the Millennial generation, who say they do not belong to any organized faith. Indeed, by some conventional measures, religiously affiliated Americans are, on average, even more devout than they were a few years ago.
