Mainliners span income spread

More than any other group, members of mainline Protestant churches fall almost equally into income brackets from the less than $30,000, 25 percent; $30,000 to $49,999, 21 percent; $50,000-$74,999, 18 percent; $75,000 to $99,999, 15 percent; and $100,000 or more, 21 percent.

The Pew Forum report on income distribution with U.S. religious groups also found that Hindus have the most in the top bracket, 43 percent, and the fewest in the bottom, 9 percent.
