Most Decline in Fundamentalist Christianity Due To Growth of non-Christianity

The numbers don’t lie: the rate of fundamentalist Christianity among the American public has fallen by 10 percentage points between 1976 and 2013. 8 of these 10 percentage points are to be attributed to the growth in non-Christianity; only 2 percentage points are to be attributed to growth in non-Fundamentalist Christianity. This is clearly evidence against the ideas of the accommodationists regarding the proper strategy for the deconversion of fundamentalist Christians. The only year that recorded a simultaneous decrease in the percentage of Americans being fundamentalists and percentage of Americans being non-Christians was 2007/8. Lack of religiosity is on the rise in America and is at an all-time high, as is the percentage who say religion is losing its influence in America.
