Mainline and evangelical churches aren’t the only religious communities losing members these days. According to a new study published in the Journal of Religion and Demography, Mormonism is no longer followed by the majority of residents in Utah.

Ryan Cragun, a professor of sociology at the University of Tampa, says the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints kept 95% of its children in the church in the 1980s, compared to approximately 67% today.

“Almost a third of people who are raised LDS today leave the religion,” he explained. “That’s our current best estimate.”

As a result of this exodus, Mormon leaders have responded in very similar ways to evangelical leaders.
