The Good News is That Fewer Americans Than Ever Before Want Daily Prayer in Public Schools…

… The bad news is that 61% of Americans still want daily prayer in public schools.

That’s according to a new poll from Gallup:

When you break the numbers down by demographic, they’re pretty much what you’d expect. Daily classroom prayers are supported by those who attend church every week (82%), are Protestant (77%), and are Republicans (80%). Meanwhile the numbers were much lower from those who seldom attend church (49%), had no religious preference (35%), or are Democrats (45%).

Obviously, the fact that daily classroom prayers are illegal doesn’t seem to matter to most people — they want them anyway.

What’s really sad is that there’s probably more support to have mandatory prayers in school than there is to teach proper science (without Creationism or Intelligent Design getting in the way).
