Did you know that over 70% of the USA is Christian? (according to a 2001 survey)

Call me stupid or nieve or ignorant (whatever) but i didnt know that. I mean, i always knew that there were lots of Christians in the US but i never really considered myself a minority (besides here in my home town. Nearly everyone here is conservative Christian).

  • Remember calling yourself a christian can mean many different things to many different people. Many people identify themselves as christian simply because they were raised in a church, or they think that if they are not Jewish or Muslem they have to be christian. There is a difference between being a born again Christian, who is serving God and a christian in name or as only a religious activity...kwim

  • I agree with what Teamquinn said. As far as Christianity goes, I've always considered myself a minority because I am far from "mainstream."
