Americans Much Less Religious Than They Claim to Be

Americans are hardly more religious than people living in other industrialized countries. Yet they consistently-and more or less uniquely-want others to believe they are more religious than they really are.

The studies are interesting, the slate article is meep. His final conclusion is just bad.

Why do you think his conclusion is bad?

In Hawaii, the religious are much less American than they claim to be.

Some Americans claim their religion is the only one... and it's somewhat unconventionally
self-destructive.

Why do Americans and Canadians feel the need to overreport their religious attendance?


This is his whole article idea, and he doesn't even take a whiff at answering it. The closest he gets to answering it is denying a commonly accepted answer (religious persecution/freedom).

And then comes he coup de grce

For many Americans, church attendance is a central part of their lives. For others, it's a waste of time.

Brilliant meeping stuff there.

Ah. By "bad," I thought you meant "wrong," not "inane." Gotcha.

I got one of those stupid scammers once- He actually gave me his phone number, so that I could call him back to be sure that he was genuine.

I can't imagine how humorous it must be to watch an old man trying to wrangle a goat while in shorts & a silly hat: film at 11pm.
BeachGoat
These are 120 pounders, and feral, and they don't want to be apart, so wish me luck.

Must separate the boy & girl goats today; ready to start birthing.
