The Gallup Poll Says...

76.5% (159 million) of Americans identify themselves as Christian. This is a major slide from 86.2% in 1990. Identification with Christianity has suffered a loss of 9.7 percentage points in 11 years - - about 0.9 percentage points per year. This decline is identical to that observed in Canada between 1981 and 2001. If this trend has continued, then:

At the present time (2007 May), only 71% of American adults consider themselves Christians.
The percentage will dip below 70% in 2008
By the year 2042, non Christians will outnumber the Christians in the U.S.

(I thought this was interesting what do you think?)
