State of Religion

heron61 has collected links to a bunch of article on current religious attitudes.
http://heron61.livejournal.com/504583.html

A study saying that religiosity correlates with societal dysfunction (such as the high murder and STD rates of the US vs. less religious First World societies); the Barna group reporting that young Americans are increasingly non-Christian and skeptical of evangelicals, with 40% being "outsiders" (non-Christian), and criticizing Christianity for being anti-homosexual; a long report on religion in the UK, with specific mention of Jedis; an article on British attitudes; an article on world articles.

Bonus link: Barna on American atheists/agnostics.

Observations on the latter: it calls 18-22 year old "Mosaics", vs. Busters, Boomers, and Elders above them.
It notes age differences when talking about technology and change attitudes, but drops it when saying that non-faith adults donate less to charities and are less obese. Yet the fact that non-faithness increases with youth might be relevant to both. (Also not clear if the "typical" adult means mean or median.)
