A new group of Americans is challenging the reign of the Religious Right. Today, nearly one in five Americans are nonbelievers - a rapidly growing group at a time when traditional Christian churches are dwindling in numbers - and they are flexing their muscles like never before. Yet we still see almost none of them openly serving in elected office, while Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and many others continue to loudly proclaim the myth of America as a Christian nation.

"Americans Are Leaving Religion. Why Are We Still Subsidizing It?" is from the September 15, 2015 Ideas and Controversy section of The Washington Post. It was written by David Niose and narrated by Sam Scholl.
