How do we know Americans are embellishing their churchiness en masse? If 37 percent of Americans went to church weekly or more and 33 percent went monthly or yearly, you know what you’d see at churches? Lines of people. A hundred million people every single Sunday.

No, when it comes to self-reporting religious devotion, Americans cannot be trusted.
