An Alternative Title

Most of the major news outlets have been reporting on this study about the state of American religion by a couple of demographers funded by Lilly with headlines about the decline in Christianity in the U.S. No doubt their numbers reflect that, but in one area only - mainline Protestantism. Check out Table 3 on page 5. It's pretty amazing.

Alternative title - "Welcome to Catholic/Evangelical America" Now we know why Obama was trying to reach out to Evangelicals with the whole Rick Warren thing.
