It’s a question that has long plagued the United States.
Religion has long been a source of political division and, as a result, has often been used as a tool to advance a political agenda.
But as the world’s population ages and more and more people are growing their own religions, we can expect that questions of religion will increasingly be considered in the political arena.
As Pew Research Center senior fellow Adam Davidson said, “In the next 10 years, there will be a huge debate about the meaning of religion in the 21st century.”
Davidson says that will include a debate over what to call it and whether it should be defined as a religion or not.
The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life asked its members what the term means in the context of religion and asked people to name a number of religious traditions, denominations, and groups that they believe are important.
“We see religion as a continuum,” Davidson told CNN.
“And that means that there are many different ways to view the word.
That’s what makes religion so important, and I think that’s why it’s so powerful.”
According to the Pew Forum, about 3.2 million people identify as a member of at least one religion.
About 7.6 million people describe themselves as religious.
That means there are a lot of people who identify as atheist, agnostic, skeptic, Muslim, and a number who identify themselves as Hindu or Buddhist.
When asked which religion they would choose, an estimated 12.9% of people said that they were religious, according to the survey.
Only 8.5% of the people surveyed said they were not religious.
Davidson said that is a strong indication that religion has become a powerful political issue.
“People are choosing to be religious, and we’re seeing the political implications of that,” he said.
“Religion is a big part of who we are as Americans and how we think about the world.
So I think the political ramifications of that are enormous.”
Some Americans feel religious communities are not following the rules in terms of what is acceptable and what is not.
In a 2011 poll, about half of the Americans surveyed felt that there should be more strict rules around what is allowed and what isn’t in a religion.
Davidson says it’s the same thing that happens when we talk about religion and politics.
People are trying to define religion, he said, but “there are many people who feel that they have a legitimate reason for doing that, and it’s not the same reason as being religious.”
