The ‘Nones’ have arrived

To write meaningfully about contemporary religion, one must write about the Nones.

As of the current Gallup Poll on Obama’s approval rating by religion, that category has in a sense “arrived.” As Mark Silk observes with considerable insight.

To understand Nones, however, one must remember that they are not overwhelmingly irreligious. Fewer than 10 percent identify themselves as atheists or atheistic. The majority of Nones (59%) are agnostic or deist.
