From Conjectural navel-gazing
US survey: Most don’t think church important
From a country that, compared to Europe, is still religious. Not surprising really, not only because of the advance of secularism and ‘post-modernism’ (you aren’t pressured socially or professionally to go to a certain kind or any kind of church anymore) but because it’s a logical terminus of Protestantism. As Mgr Ronald Knox (IIRC) observed ages ago, America is the happy hunting-ground of sectarianism, including its ultimate form, a sect of one!
