Losing the Faith

CNN has an unusually interesting analysis of a recent survey conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life that shows a growing number of American adults are switching religions to something other than the one they were raised with (or, more grammatically correctly, "the one with which they were reared") or abandoning religion altogether. Of course this is great news. It means that more of us are starting to weigh our options and think for ourselves. It's no wonder that those with a college education are more skeptical of religion, and the same can be said for a generation that's grown up in a world of truly global mass communication.
