Christian poll shows that "Milennial" generation ain't very religious

From the article at USA Today: Most young adults today don't pray, don't worship and don't read the Bible, a major survey by a Christian research firm shows. If the trends continue, "the Millennial generation will see churches closing as quickly as GM dealerships," says Thom Rainer, president of LifeWay Christian Resources. In the group's survey of 1,200 18- to 29-year-olds, 72% say they're "really more spiritual than religious."

We probably shouldn't make too much of the "72% say they're really more spiritual than religious" part. My parents are fundamentalist Southern Baptists, but they say the same thing. The implication seems to be that people have come to their beliefs through their own relationship with God, and don't just have them handed down to them by some "Religion," nevermind that their beliefs are pretty much just that--handed down.
