    • Burying Your Dead Without Religion - The Atlantic
      The proportion of Americans who don't identify with a specific faith is growing. What does this mean for the future of funeral rites?
      One of the most enjoyable academic conferences on religious studies is CESNUR, the Center for the Study of New Religions, and this past month we hosted the group’s annual meeting at Baylor. I spoke on a topic that I have addressed before, namely the sharp decline in public concern (or panic) about dangerous religious cults in the United States. As I will suggest, I believe this might mark a significant social trend, and perhaps even a bellwether for secularization.
