Default From 15 percent to 20 percent

Has anyone else read the story on Yahoo that for the first time in our history, the percentage of people calling themselves protestants fell below 50 percent? The article attributes it to the people who now consider themselves not religiously affiliated rising from 15 percent to 20 percent, and the decrease in stigma associated with admitting to being non-christian. That last part is probably greatly dependent upon what part of the country you live in.
