    U.S. Protestant population seen losing majority status
    By Joyce Howard Price
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES

    The United States will lose its historic status as a majority-Protestant nation as early as this year, according to a national survey released yesterday.
    Between 1993 and 2002, the proportion of Americans who said they were Protestants fell from 63 percent to 52 percent after decades of stability, according to the study released by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago.
