The number marks an all-time low in America per a recently released Gallup poll.
In 1944 Gallup asked the question: ‘Do you believe in God?’ for the first time. A staggering 96% of Americans at the time answered in the affirmative.
Even as recently as 2011, 92% of people said that they believed in God. But in the years since, the numbers have plummeted into the mid or low 80% range, with this year’s 81% being an all-time low.
Among the various groups of people, it is fairly predictable which tend to have greater faith.
In respect to political views, Conservatives are the most likely to believe in God, with 94% saying that they still believe.
Leading the way among the non-believers are Liberals, a mere 62% of whom believe in God.
When things are broken down by race, it becomes clear that people of color are far more likely to have faith than non-Hispanic whites by a difference of 88% to 79%.
In addition, American women tend to believe more than American men by a clip of 83% to 80%.
Of course the turn away from churches in America has not necessarily been because of the people. Secularism has been propagated via numerous institutional channels in America.
Further, the left has reason to undermine Christianity.
Faith in God stands in the way of the liberal dreams that the American establishment wishes to force onto the bulk of Americans, because Christians generally oppose the LGBT platform as well as so-called abortion rights and all that those two entail.
