The other half of the battle

DrB-

 

According to an unbiased and well regarded source, knowing is half the battle.

Red and Blue lasers aside, it turns out showing up is the other 50%.

The recent boom in religiously unaffiliated Americans may ultimately help explain the results of the upcoming 2012 presidential election, according to a new poll that shows such voters lean heavily toward President Obama

 

It turns out people who care about whether or not the things they believe are true, are more likely to vote for Obama over Mittens “Clever Middle name for Lying his ass off” Romney. This is good, right?

 

……but are less likely than the religiously affiliated to turn out.

…god damnit.

 

There’s a lot of numbers and poll data here,

But the main point is this: The religiously unaffiliated are growing..but we’re not necessarily voting. Fix that. Make sure you and your “non-affiliated” friends get out to the polls and vote. Because until we do vote, government policy will continue to reflect the faith-drunk will of those who do.

Also, this cat.
