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.
