A third of young adults in America say they don’t belong to any religion. Why?
NPR did a fascinating story on this phenomenon, interviewing six young adults in Washington, D.C. They came from Jewish, Muslim, and Christian traditions. One was raised Jewish; she still loves going to synagogue but describes herself as having an “agnostic bent.” She goes to be quiet with her thoughts, but states, “I don’t think I need to answer that question [about God] in order to participate in the traditions I was brought up with.”
