It may come as a surprise to some that religiosity seems to be on the gradual decline in the United States, overall.  But that seems to be so. 

Whether it’s a cyclical matter, or a long-term thing, who knows? 

I suspect, though, that the same dynamics that are causing it have also influenced a significant proportion of the still rather small but vocal group who loudly trumpet and celebrate their apostasy from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the internet. 

Something to think about, anyway.
