CWN Editor's Note: According to The Pillar Survey on Religious Attitudes and Practices, 35% of Americans attend religious services weekly, 28% have a “different religious identity” from the one in which they were raised, and 52% agree with the statement that “Jesus suffered and died to redeem our sins.”

Another recent survey, by the Public Religion Research Institute, reported that Catholics make up 20% of the American population. The Pillar result is significantly higher. Both survey reports allowed for a significant margin of error.
