"In 1955 a Gallup poll showed that only 4% of the adult population--1 person in 25--no longer adhered to the faith of their childhood. Some 30 years later, another Gallup poll showed that 1 person in 3 had switched from the faith in which they had been raised. "

"The Religious Switcher in the United States " in American Sociological Review, 44:528-552 (1979)]; pg. 448. "Between 25 and 32% of Americans currently are members of a religious group other than the one in which they were raised. The main reasons... seem to be the desire to worship with people of similar socioeconomic status, the desire to have the same religious membership as one's spouse, and the abandonment of established religion by young people. 27% of those who switched went to a category of 'no religious membership at all.'

Convulsionaries France - - - - 1731 Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 4). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970); pg. 516. "Francois de Paris... died in 1727.... On the day of the funeral, an old woman... was cured on touching the bier. Other miraculous cures were reported... during the next four years. But it was in... 1731 that... Visitors to the tomb of St. Medard began to be seized with convulsions... The Church of St. Medard had Jansenist connections, situated as it was near Port-Royal [France] which was a renowned centre of Jansenist scholars. When the cult of Francois de Paris grew, the adherents who became known as Convulsionaries were a group of Jansenists... "
Convulsionaries France - - - - 1732 Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 4). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970); pg. 516. "...in January 1732 the cemetary was closed by royal decree... But although the focus of the convulsionary movement was thus removed, neither the healings nor the convulsions were thereby brough to an end. Evidently the connection with the tomb of Francois de Paris was incidental, rather than essential. The movement spread into the provinces. Significantly, it found support among the aristocracy, and even Voltaire's brother, Armand Arouet, counted himself among its adherents. "
Convulsionaries France - - - - 1732 Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 4). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970); pg. 516. "The fame of St. Medard spread and the number of visitors multiplied. However, not all those who came did so for worthy reasons; on 7 August 1731 a certain widow Delorme came to the cemetary to scoff, and was paralysed for her impudence... Public opinion was still further roused, for political issues were involved; near-riots ensued, and in January 1732 the cemetary was closed by royal decree. "
Convulsionaries France - - - - 1758 Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 4). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970); pg. 516. "If we ask what the Convulsionaries actualy did to provoke those extreme judgements, the account of an interview which took place in 1758 between Lieutenant Bertin of the Frenc Police and a certain Dr. Dubourg of Paris is illuminating. Dubourg's testimony was restrained and factual. He was privately convinced that although the practices of the Convulsionaries were odd and indeed repugnant, there was no question of imposture or trickery... "; "...the Jansenist origins of the movement introduced a political element... and as a result the authorities adopted repressive measures. Thousands of Convulsionaries were imprisoned. This had the effect of driving the movement underground, where it later gave rise to competing sects before disappearing completely. "
