Scientific American reported the findings of a recent study that claimed Generation X is more loyal to religion than baby boomers.
My experience as a Gen X'er has been quite opposite of this study's findings. My twenties featured an evolution from evangelical christian to cynical atheist. Maybe it's just the circles I run in, but I don't know anyone that goes to church regularly.
I am interested to know if I am missing something here...are Gen X'ers really church-going religious followers? That doesn't seem to fit with our age group. But, I could be wrong. Religion tends to exclude, not include. For an accepting, tolerant generation such as ours...being loyal to a religious doctrine seems like a conflicting behavior.
