The elderly have been traditionally among those who regularly attend weekly services. The most loyal and active church goers among adults in America are in fact “liberal” Protestant tradition bands such as Anglicans, including members of Methodist and Presbyterian groups.
Very interesting that Trump seems to also be appealing to many who did not vote for him in last election out of this large group.
And here is an interesting survey: according to 2018 American General 72% of American adults self-identify as Christians vs only 5% are affiliated with religions other than Christianity. Furthermore, 78% are “Religious none’s” meaning they do not typically attend church at all. 22% only attend church once a year (either Christmas or Easter).
One fringe benefit that might still yet emerge as a result of this pandemic is wider spread use of virtual church?
I imagine, if a paradigm shift transpires here, Trump will like credit for that as well…
