LDS Related - Religion in America?
I think this gives a pretty clear picture of the top religions in the US and whats happening. I'm totally biased towards the LDS church though so... what are everyones comments? http://religionus.blogspot.com/ click on the graph to see it clearly i couldnt include other belief systems like muslims or agnostics because there are no statistics. So i tried to convey the idea that you take the largest Churchy religions in the US and compare those, they are similar is design and purpose so the graph is pretty accurate in that regard. I wrote the primary references to make the blog accurate. (i've never done a blog before).

Do NOT agree with the LDS ways. Nor do I agree with JW's.

The LDS is out-breeding other religions in the US. Its external conversion rate is stagnant and it's notoriously difficult to leave the church (i.e., have them take you off their rolls). Interesting that it's that blogger's only post ever.

well if you separate the real christians from the bootleg ones, then the Mormons are extremely outnumbered they should get more kids on bikes to make up for it

I guess it is growing because Mormons all have 15 kids.

Perhaps if you could determin the amount of money taken from your taxes, if you do pay taxes, to take care of those sick kids those mentally ill LDS men and goofy ignorant women are having, you might think differently. Some of their kids are born with only a part of their brain, and have to be cared for every hour of... More

I am not surprised that the LDS is steadily growing I think an important factor is that they do not need to blend in with the world. Although Roman Catholics are bigger than all those groups combined.

So Mormons are the only ones that went up? Sorry, but I can't take something from a blog seriously. And they don't even bother to put on Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Agnostics, Pagans, and so on and so forth.

It's called being commanded to have babies while they're still babies instead of waiting a few years and educating oneself. I was once part of that cult, but thank goodness as of 4 years ago I was able to think for myself and get the heck out of there. Partied like and ex-mo, I did!

Mormons are about 1.6% of the US population according to the Pew survey, which is actually credible. By their own numbers they convert 300,000 per year world wide with 50,000 missionaries. They lose about 50,000/year to formal resignations, but refuse to say how many people just never show up again... More
