(Worthy News)-- The American people have become slightly less Christian and more "unaffiliated" in the last few years, says a new study that seeks to track even the smallest trends in this major cultural issue, the Washington Times reported.
Some 70 percent of Americans were part of a Christian church in 2014, down from 78 percent in 2007, said the Pew Research Center study, released Tuesday.
Overall, the number of Christians fell from 178 million in 2007 to 173 million in 2014, said the study, which is based on a telephone survey of more than 35,000 adults. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/may/12/americans-less-christian-more-unaffiliated-survey-/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
