Still, Pew found overall that most of the unaffiliated aren’t actively seeking another religious home, indicating that their ties with organized religion are permanently broken.
Pretty interesting article. I wouldn’t ever call myself an atheist, because then it seems that atheism is your religion, but it’s awesome to hear that there are more and more people like me who have no religious affiliation whatsoever out there these days. Gives me hope.
What’s wrong with having religious affiliation? Why would it “give you hope” to hear people are not classifying themselves as belonging to a faith. It shouldn’t matter one way or the other whether or not people designate themselves as faithful.
