Americans like to think of themselves as a Christian nation. But this, like many other ideal ideas they have about themselves, is just an illusion.
Church attendance in the USA, although still higher than Europe, is lower than what they think it is.
The Public Religion Research Institute, just published a survey they conducted and informs us of the real church attendance by Americans. This is what they found:
On the phone, 36 percent of Americans report attending religious services weekly or more, while 30 percent say they seldom or never go. But online, a smaller share (31 percent) of people surveyed said they attended church at least weekly, while a larger portion (43 percent) admitted they seldom or never go.
