It just occurred to me that the number of non-religious people in the U.S. exceeds that of any other minority group. Its perhaps no wonder that Obama was forced to recognize the non-religious in his acceptance speech. To not do so would have been political suicide since we're a bigger minority than African Americans and Jews put together.

The non-religious make up about 24-33% depending upon how you read the numbers. That's about 73 million people.

Even if you just count atheists and agnostics, the number is about 37 million people!
