Estimates of Religious Populations Require a Bit of Faith -

Americans are obsessed with counting noses, but our census does not survey religious affiliation. We are left with a variety of counts some accurate, some speculation.  If you click on the title of this entry you will go to the Wall Street Journal article on the subject.  The illustration above comes from the same article.

Despite right-wing rhetoric on the threats to Christianity in this country, Christianity remains the dominant faith in the United States.  Protestants form the majority among Christians. Evangelical Baptists the majority among Protestants.  I find it hard to believe that the small minority can suppress such a large majority.
