‘Non-practicing Christians’ form largest religious bloc in Western Europe

Catholic World News – 5/29/18

Editor’s Note: A Pew Forum survey has found that “non-practicing Christians” form the largest religious bloc in the nations of Western Europe. While 91% of the people in Western Europe are baptized, Pew finds, only 71% currently identify themselves as Christians, and just 22% attend church services. Pew categorizes 46% of the region’s population as “non-practicing Christians.”

In what may be a noteworthy result of the survey, among those “non-practicing Christians” an overwhelming majority—87%—report that they have raised or are raising their children as Christians.
