For Gen Z, Religious Pluralism Will Require Bridging the Religious-Secular DivideDaniel A. Cox April 5, 2022
For Generation Z, American religious life has been defined by its diversity. And religious pluralism has been as much practice as principle.
Young adults today have close friends and family members spanning a variety of religious identities and beliefs. In a survey conducted by the Survey Center on American Life, we found that nearly one in five (17%) of all marriages in the last decade have been among people of different faith traditions. If you count marriages between religious and non-religious people, the number of “interfaith” couples rises to nearly one in three (32%). In fact, marital relationships between religious and non-religious people are nearly as common as those between people of different faiths.
