For The First Time Ever, Less Than Half Of Americans Are Members Of Churches, Synagogues Or Mosques

For the first time since the late 1930s, fewer than half of Americans say they belong to a church, synagogue, or mosque, according to a new report from Gallup.

The decline is part of a continued drop in membership over the past 20 years, according to Gallup data.
