Americans Switch Faiths At Least Once

Ad Feedback

About half of adult Americans switch their religious affiliation at least once during their lives, often times among various Christian denominations.

That is one of the findings from a new study by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

One expert says the report shows how pervasive religion a la carte is in America.

People change faiths or abandon them completely for different reasons, including:

  • They didn't believe their spiritual needs were being met.
  • They liked another faith more.
  • Or they changed their own religious or moral beliefs.

Most people decide on one religious viewpoint by the age of 36.
