The Shrinking Secular Family

World Magazine recently blogged about the “shrinking liberal family.” Although I usually disagree with the viewpoint expressed by that magazine, this is one issue where I find myself in agreement with them. In fact, it is something I have been saying for years. I don’t claim to have hard statistical evidence, but it has always been my experience that, on average, religious families tend to have more children than non-religious families. Moreover, on average, the largest families are almost always religious whereas couples with no children are more likely to be non-religious.

I’d be interested in hearing from others about whether their observations match mine.
