A Los Angeles Times article on June 21, 1998 reports on the "dramatic religious transformation" the United States is currently experiencing. Paul Griffiths, professor of philosophy of religion at the University of Chicago, states that "more religions are being practiced in the United States than anyplace else." Diana Eck, professor of comparative religion at Harvard University, asserts that "cultural pluralism is changing America's religious life. It is making our spiritual tradition much richer and broader."
