The number of American adults who do not identify with a particular religion is growing and may comprise more than 20 percent of the population in two decades, according to a new study.
Conducted by researchers at Trinity College, the study, entitled "American Nones: The Profile of the No Religion Population," showed that people who profess no religion, or "Nones," are similar to the general public in marital status, education, racial and ethnic makeup and income.
According to the study, it is possible that one in five Americans will put themselves in the "None" category by 2030.
"We are here. We are like everybody else. We are part of the community." said Jesse Galef, communications associate at the Secular Coalition for America.
