I was doing some thinking, people tend to think of Christianity as the majority religion. But was was wondering if they are the majority when placed against other religions separately, or when placed against non-Christians?
Anyone know where I could get those numbers? Now that it's not on the Census any more, are their any reliable sources for those numbers?

Here's a good link: http://www.adherents.com/rel_USA.html
Christianity includes Catholics, Protestants, LDS, JWs, Orthodox, and a bunch of other. Protestant is by far the largest at 53%.

What about people who profess to being Christians but don't even go to church or practice that faith? Shouldn't those people not count when taking polls? I don't see how anyone could get a 'real' number unless they investigated every single person.

Like NP noted, Christianity is a plurality for the world when all religions are divided. If you divided it into two parts (Christian and non-Christian), non-Christian religions are the majority.
As for specifically the U.S., I'm positive that Christianity is the majority belief.
