American ‘nones’ open to wide range of denominations


Americans have a surprising openness to Christian churches, even those who are supposedly turned off to religion, a new survey of denominational opinions by LifeWay Research.

No matter which denomination is in the name of a church, fewer than half the nonreligious say “it’s not for me.” Their views are more favorable than unfavorable toward a wide range of faiths—Catholic, Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, Assemblies of God, and non-denominational.
