CNN Reports: I don't think anyone that reads this blog will find this news report shocking but it's worth passing on to you.

Quote: "The American religious economy is like a marketplace -- very dynamic, very competitive," said Luis Lugo, director of the Pew Forum. "Everyone is losing, everyone is gaining. There are net winners and losers, but no one can stand still. Those groups that are losing significant numbers have to recoup them to stay vibrant."

Quote: One in four adults ages 18 to 29 claim no affiliation with a religious institution.

I think this article speaks more of the lack of commitment of 18 to 29 year olds rather than mass exodus from the faith. Most people I speak to believe in God but fewer want to commit to something that requires sacrifice, commitment and is not self-serving.
