Religion in the USA
Religion plays a fairly large role in the US. At one time, the first English colonies on the territory of the modern United States of America were created precisely by religious refugees; later, mass immigration of people from different countries into the country provided an extraordinary diversity of religious beliefs of the residents of the state.
It was in the United States that many of the most widespread religious movements in the world today were born, for example, such branches of Protestantism as the Episcopal Church, Adventism, and Pentecostals; Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; Jehovah witnesses; emerged quite recently, in the middle of the last century, Scientology and some others.
The First Amendment to the US Constitution determines that the United States cannot have a state religion and guarantees freedom of religion in the country. Practically in the United States today you can meet people who profess all world religions.
Although the official census does not ask about religious affiliation, such information about the US population is collected by various public organizations. According to polls, about seventy-five people in the United States call themselves believers.
|Most Common Religions in the USA|
|Religion||The number of its adherents relative to the total US population|
|Other religions||about 1%|
|Without religious affiliation (agnostics, atheists)||about 25%|
The phrase ” In God We Trust ” (“In God We Trust”) has been one of the US national mottos since 1956. In 1864, it was first minted on the US two cent coin, and since 1957 it can be seen on all coins and denominations of the United States of America.
The ratio of the number of believers to the total population in different US states is not uniform. Most religious people are in the “Bible Belt” – the states in the South of the USA. A very large parishioner of the Southern Baptist Convention, traditionally popular in the region, lives here. The state with the highest church attendance is Utah, where the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) is traditionally strong. The least religious are the New England states in the US Northeast (Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine) and the Pacific states of the US West (Oregon and Washington).
|US States with the Highest Weekly Church Attendance|
|State||The number of parishioners relative to the total population of the state|
|South Carolina||about 42%|
|North Carolina||about 40%|
The number of supporters of one or another confession among racial and ethnic groups in the United States is very heterogeneous.
