Here’s a very disturbing survey result. Nearly one-third of Americans, according to a recent poll, would support making Christianity the official religion of their state or the entire country — and a far higher percentage of Republicans.
The new survey finds that 34 percent of adults would favor establishing Christianity as the official state religion in their own state, while 47 percent would oppose doing so. Thirty-two percent said that they would favor a constitutional amendment making Christianity the official religion of the United States, with 52 percent saying they were opposed…
Although a large percentage of Americans said they would favor establishing a state religion, only 11 percent said they thought the U.S. Constitution allowed states to do so. Fifty-eight percent said they didn’t think it was constitutional, and 31 percent said they were not sure…Republicans were more likely than Democrats or independents to say that they would favor establishing Christianity as an official state religion, with 55 percent favoring it in their own state and 46 percent favoring a national constitutional amendment.
Well at least most of them recognize that the constitution doesn’t allow this, but 30% of Republicans favored passing a constitutional amendment to declare Christianity the official religion of the country. This is absolutely appalling but not the least bit surprising.
