Mormonism and Islam are among the fastest growing religions in America, while just over half of all Americans are unaffiliated with any denomination, according to a major census of the country's religious congregations published Wednesday.
That the growing faiths aren't afraid to seek out converts is another factor, Mr. Stuart said: "Islam, Mormonism, evangelicals all strongly proselytize. A church that is not missionizing is a dying church. If you don't reach out, then you decline."
The growth of religions whose adherents are usually highly committed to rituals and practice might be attributed to a search for structure in an unstable world, said William T. Stuart, anthropology professor at the University of Maryland in College Park.
