In many places, it's no longer all that odd to not be very religious. I think that as that social pressure is removed, you will see more people leaving.

I live in an area that is pretty 'average' (suburban area that tends to elect people from both parties and is neither extremely liberal nor extremely conservative) and I know a crapload of people who are fairly unobservant in their religion. I don't know that many people who are upfront about being atheists or agnostics, but I know a lot of people who go to a church or a synagogue either never or very rarely and who don't really talk much about religion.

I'm 32 and I grew up in a pretty small church. The church has since closed but most of us still keep in touch. From my generation, of around 25 people, only about 3-4 still attend church on a regular basis.
