The U.S. ranks 33rd in religiously unaffiliated persons

According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, an estimated 16.4% of Americans have no religious affiliation. That is enough to make the United States tied for thirty-third with Singapore out of more than two hundred countries ranked in that category. The Czech Republic ranks first, with an estimated 76.4% of Czech’s have no religious affiliation.

    Tangent: I’m shocked that the South Korean number is that high. It has both a long Buddhist tradition, and Christianity started making major inroads at the turn of the 20th century.

    I thank you for sharing this information here, as a follow-up to the ranking of the U.S. as third (by numbers) in religiously ‘unaffiliated’ persons… I took a brief look at the Pew Forum report which is ‘linked’… a wealth of information, which merits a closer look… I find it interesting that Albania and Bulgaria have such low percentages of ‘religiously unaffiliated’… Communist Russia and China (I think) are officially ‘non-religious’, and have done plenty to persecute believers of all religious traditions, but I believe Albania and Bulgaria are the only nations that have been officially ‘athiest’… in spite of pressure from ‘the powers that be’, faith does not just endure… faith continues to be ‘a light shining to those in darkness’… Glory to God!… D.
