This chapter examines America's increasing religious diversity, including the increasing number of people with no religious affiliation. People often talk about religious tolerance, but the cultural shift accompanying increased religious diversity goes beyond mere tolerance. With some qualifications, the chapter argues that Americans now have a greater appreciation of religion other than their own. Moreover, just as families and friendship circles are more religiously diverse than they once were, religious communities are more ethnically diverse than they were before. Indeed, increasing diversity is not just a distant fact about the society as a whole. Many people directly experience this trend in their everyday lives.
