"Phew"

You mean white America is catching up, to whites in the rest of the western world. The non-whites on the other hand in the case are still living in the past.

Please do not tell me what I think. I have read your posts. Although I hold a soft spot for you, as I do Pop's, it is not out of mutual respect.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Apparently they do. Consider

No, you made a generalized statement about America based on the interview and article in question, when in fact the "catching up" is exclusive to particular demographic of Americans, namely whites.

To you, Americans are white or black. To me, they are Americans.

One demographic group in the US does not exist in isolation. The PERCENTAGES discussed represent a WHOLE picture.

When speaking of the trajectory of the nones, you're speaking more so of White Americans, than non-whites.

As indicated in the PEW:

"When it comes to race, however, the recent change has been concentrated in one group: whites. One-fifth of (non-Hispanic) whites now describe themselves as religiously unaffiliated, up five percentage points since 2007. By contrast, the share of blacks and Hispanics who are religiously unaffiliated has not changed by a statistically significant margin in recent years."

So then it's blacks and other non-whites that need to "catch up", isn't it ? Angel
