Poll: America Losing Its Religion


americaMore than three in four of Americans say religion is losing its influence in the United States, according to a new survey, the highest such percentage in more than 40 years. A nearly identical percentage says that trend bodes ill for the country.

“It may be happening, but Americans don’t like it,” Frank Newport, Gallup’s editor in chief, said of religion’s waning influence. “It is clear that a lot of Americans don’t think this is a good state of affairs.”

According to the Gallup survey released Wednesday, 77% of Americans say religion is losing its influence. Since 1957, when the question was first asked, Americans’ perception of religion’s power has never been lower.

According to the poll, 75% of Americans said the country would be better off if it were more religious.

  1. America is one nation under G-d. As long as American culture does indeed include Hashem in its prayers and ways, we are not to worry. The fact that some of the people do not do the church so much is actually a plus when you consider the backwards ways of many of the church beliefs today. So keep davening.

  2. There is a powerful and ruthless small minority that have nearly destroyed and are destroying America’s fabric.

  3. Oh,a certain wicked man has claimed on this site that jews should avoid pushing their opinions on the majority.

    The fraud

  4. Please note that the poll does not ask people if they are themselves religious. Instead, it asks about people’s *impressions* about what is happening in the country. If you would ask people about their own religious outlook, I’m sure you would find that the exact opposite is true.

    The USA is still a religious country. Looking at what’s on the media and in advertising, you might not think so, but Americans as a general rule are believers. If we didn’t take religion seriously we wouldn’t have to have separation of church and state to keep us from killing each other the way they used to do in Europe. For example, look up the “Thirty Years War” where Protestants and Catholics slaughtered each other, or their combined record when dealing with us.

  5. Its groups like the ACLU and others Liberals who have so beaten down the American people, that they are afraid to practice religion! Only perverts are allowed to express themselves! You can thank the Obama admin for this as well!
