9. yeah, it's not that the country is losing its religion

It's that we are a truly diverse population now. There are a lot more non-religious people. My children are atheists. But many other people are religious, and there are still many protestant Christians. But there are many people of different faiths. We are a truly diverse culture now. It's a beautiful thing. Many religious Americans believe in their faith but are also scientifically minded. There are many protestant Christians like the evangelical Christians who are interested in going oversees. My father who is evangelical Christian mentions to me all the time that he thinks people from developing countries who still practice mystical religions are more open to receiving miracles than Americans.
