    vote for The President.

    The only group he didn't win was Protestants, and he still got a not insignificant 42%.

    So, you know....perhaps fewer threads about the general stupidity of any person of faith?

    On a side note, I know many younger people who consider themselves "Spiritual," but not, "Religious," even if they're churchgoers.

      that "no religion" = atheism.  That is not actually the case.  Most of those are just as you describe, people who are spiritual but not religious.  

      That said, people who identify as no religion are much more likely to vote Democratic than any Christians.  That doesn't mean when we celebrate the decline of organized religion that we denigrate all followers of a religion any more than when we celebrate the rise of latinos we do not denigrate whites.
