Baptists in the Current Religious Landscape

The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life just released this graph highlighting the percentage of Baptists in America, a number to me that, at first, seemed surprisingly high. But after interviewing 35K people, it's hard to quibble with the results.

Notice that, though still a big percentage of Baptists, Southern Baptists aren't the majority denomination. As a Baptist, I say this to remind everyone that Baptists come in all shapes, sizes, and theological persuasion, progressive to conservatism, every point in between.
