  • I didn't know it was, I was taught in school that Protestant was the largest religion here, though that doesn't seem to be true of the area I live in.

  • Christopher Columbus was Catholic. So chances are by the time this became the US, Catholicism was already the majority. But I'm not sure.

  • If everyone claimed "protestant" as their religion it would be the larges religion, but most do not claim "Protestant" as religion they claim, baptist, Lutheran ect..
