The findings, which document a steady drift away from church life, dovetail with a LifeWay survey of teenagers in 2007 who drop out of church and a study in February by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, which compared the beliefs of Millennials with those of earlier generations of young people.

I wonder how much of that is some sort of personal New Agey interpretation of christianity? In that case, it would not help the rational movement one bit….

Wait, there’s no option for neither spiritual nor religious?
