I’ve always wound it interesting how religiosity decreases as a result of having lesser religious people of your own kind around.

From my empirical observations, Hindu immigrants in the us were almost universally irreligious, and the muslim ones from the Indian subcontinent were FAR less than what you’d expect back home. I don’t know if there’s also a bias since most people I knew had a science or engineering background and were less likely to be religious anyway. But what was interesting was the Christians showed a marked increase, interestingly from the Koreans and Chinese, and a couple of Indians that i knew there. Maybe it was the proliferation of churches that strengthened social networks and increased attendance? Food for thought.
