Are Americans less religious than 10 years ago?
Probably. But much of this article smells like ‘Christianity must change or die’ from Modernists and mainliners, who are old and shrinking.
In the measured decade, churches, temples and synagogues told surveyors that congregations that were innovative and contemporary showed the highest amount of “high spiritual vitality.”

Forty-seven percent of congregations that said their worship experience was “innovative and contemporary” reported high spiritual vitality, versus 17% that said their congregations were “neither innovative nor contemporary.”
‘Ladies love Joe Schmoe’, said Joe Schmoe. Biased much? How about an independent measure of success or failure?

From T1:9.
