Majority Of Republican Primary Voters Want To Establish Christianity As A National Religion | ThinkProgress

Posted: February 25, 2015 in Atheism, Religion, Science

A national poll of Republican primary voters conducted by Public Policy Polling finds that 57 percent of these voters support “establishing Christianity as the national religion.” The First Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

Only 30 percent of Republican voters believe that Congress should not make a law respecting an establishment of religion, according to the poll.

The same poll also finds that 74 percent of GOP primary voters have a favorable opinion of former President George W. Bush. Two-thirds (66%) do not believe in global warming, and a plurality (49%) do not believe in evolution.

  1. of course, the study should have asked which version of Christianity. If American would become a theocracy, we’d have a civil war in an instant when the other Christians who wanted the power didn’t get their way.
