A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
In another example that Christian America is in decline, a new poll from the Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research reports that only 25 percent of Americans say it’s very or extremely important a candidate for office has strong religious beliefs.
Among white evangelical Protestants, 51 percent consider it very or extremely important a candidate has strong religious beliefs.
Fox News reports the poll found that 57 percent of Americans still want religion to have an influence on government policy including poverty.
While still a slight majority of evangelicals consider the religion of candidates extremely important, there’s no doubt that among Americans in general, the influence of religion in their daily lives and politics is on the decline.
And among younger Americans the trend is away from strong religious values which will make religion have a less prominent spot on the public square.
