CWN Editor's Note: The role of religion in American life is shrinking, according to 80% of the people polled in a Pew Research study.

Most of those who saw a decline in religious influence agreed that this was unfortunate. A clear majority (57%) said that religion’s influence is positive.

Nearly half of those polled (48%) said that they have seen conflicts between their religious beliefs and mainstream American culture. That number is up from 42% just four years ago.
