23% actually. As big as Evangelical Christians and Catholics, which were the biggest. Now it's about a 3 way tie, or was last year. I've read it's bigger than that in the US now especially with Covid. Alot of people have probably lost faith in a god that would allow somebody like Putinswhineylittlebitch to kill a 1/4million people?https://religionnews.com/2019/03/21/nones-now-as-big-as-evangelicals-catholics-in-the-us/

I agree 100%. Same with Australia, where I served a mission for 2 years. It's awesome. It doesn't have nearly the problems the US has, especially with homelessness. When I was there if you wanted a house, you had a house. There was zero homelessness.
I grew up in Seattle and there was always homeless people, but it's way different now. Never seen it like it is now. And it's not just Seattle, it's EVERY big city on the West Coast. Even small cities, like the one I live in. Tent cities are growing by the day. It's a huge downward spiral, fueled by hopelessness. And Covid has just really exacerbated the problem, ESPECIALLY with poor people.
Capitalism has failed a lot of people.
the Ironic thing is that the areas that have been hit hardest by the pandemic, are all areas that are ravaged by Covid.
Why is that?
Because you don't have statewide precautions where the majority of the voters reject science.
In South Dakota, where the pandemic is spreading like wildfire, the governor still has not imposed a statewide mask mandate. There was a video of a nurse went viral talking to a dying patient who swore Covid was a hoax and refused to acknowledge it until her final breath.
