5 Interesting Facts about Women and Religion

Part of my research is focused on how the social sciences relate to "religion" and religious studies.  More specifically, I spend time examining the sociology of religion.  I look at stats, demographics, and polls.  I look at rates of attendance, frequency of prayer, levels of "religiosity," apostates (or the less religiously-loaded term "exiters"), and political outlooks.  I also look at how bias this area of study is in favor of religion.  One facet of this work that has always interested me, i … [Read more...]
