The Eight Largest Faith Groups in the US
Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) has recently published a list of the "Eight Largest Faith Groups." I have no doubt this is in response to the pressure from minority religions to be recognized more and more on campus. I have friends who attended school at IUP, but don't honestly know about the religious communities or pressures on campus, myself. And while I know their numbers to be incorrect, the fact that yet another college is taking steps to push religious equality and tolerance on campus is by no means a small blessing.
**I do find it interesting that they identified a major symbol for each faith listed EXCEPT for Wicca, no doubt in an effort to avoid depicting an pentacle.
