Well, there may just be hope for us yet. But Europeans, Canadians and Australians have been outpacing us in this regard. They’re growing up much faster than we are.

From the graph plotting the percentages, it looks like the Nones came from the Mainline Protestants.  I don’t think the organized religions have much to worry about when it comes to political influence, since the Nones are not organized to collect donations to influence politics.  Yes, it is contrary to tax laws that religion be involved in politics, but everyone knows that law is not enforced on the larger, politically influential churches, I.e. Catholics and Mormons.

Changing the subject, how would Americans react if Islam used its money to influence American politics?

I assume you are talking about, among other things, the proposed legislation to give the death penalty to women who have abortions.  That is the proposal of a wingnut, and is too extreme, even for Texas.  Our legislative team (from my hospital system) assures us that it will not go anywhere.

It was what I had in mind.
There are other states with heavy-handed proposals too.

It would be interesting to see how fast they would dry up if there were consequences for men, too.
