Semi-Interesting Data on Diversity of Faith in U.S. Cities
Click here to look at a new study from the Barna Group that focuses on diversity of religious faith in cities around our country. I refer to the data as "semi-interesting" because I don't know how valuable and/or precise it is. For example, they asked people if they describe themselves as "Christian." This term has so many different meanings to so many different people that it has, sadly, become almost meaningless. When 96% of Charlotte, N.C. reports that it is Christian, we know we are looking at some skewed data. Anyway, it's an interesting read, even if I'll take the results with a grain of salt.
