Rasmussen has uncovered a rather unexpected data point that indicates religion is still a very important value in American life:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 53% of American Adults think America would be a better place if most people attended religious services on a regular basis. Just seven percent (7%) think the country would be worse off, while 30% believe more religious attendance would have no impact on society. Ten percent (10%) are not sure.
I’d like to see more depth on this topic, but this is a terrific validation that faith is still an important part of American life, and being active in church activities is not nearly as passé as the mainstream media might make us think.
Granted, how a political leader goes about being an active person of faith matters greatly. Grace goes a long way toward building relationships, both in politics and in faith.
