At the Religion Newswriters Conference on Friday morning, panelists said more and more Christians are hesitant to identify as “Evangelical” or “born again.”

Sara Pulliam Bailey, managing editor of Odyssey Networks, said that's partly because young Christians aren't sure if they can be Evangelical and at the same time support issues like same-sex marriage.

“A lot of young Evangelicals know where they came from, but don't know where they are now,” she said.

What about you. Do you openly identify as an Evangelical Christian?
