Americans Surprisingly Flexible About Religion and Faith

America has always had a thriving, competitive religious marketplace. But the pollsters say they're surprised at how much individual religious opening they found, and they're unsure about why it appears to be growing. Intermarriage is one possible contributing factor, but the pollsters don't think that fully explains it.

Ingber has a different thought. "There is a way for those who love God to love God together, and I think that's what we're trying to do now is we're trying to say let's go beyond the labels."

As Tear said, she is proud of her faith, but she believes God is bigger than any one religion.
