With regard to religion, my cousin and dear friend is a devoutly skeptical and endlessly curious, a combination I hold in high esteem. He posted this article, entitled "Religious Diversity May Be Making America Less Religious," by Daniel Cox for fivethirtyeight.com.
I found this article extremely interesting. Upon reflection, the question that emerged for me was what it means to be "religious." This article points me toward a potential change in what it means to be religious. Is "religious" about belief, as Protestants tend to think? Is it about practice, as Catholic and (more clearly) Buddhist traditions suggest? I think in the US, "religious" has actually tended to mean something else.
