    A new poll conducted by Pew Global Views revealed that at least half of the Americans questioned support religion playing a larger role in society.

    From Yahoo:

    Around half of Americans favor religion playing a greater role in US society, while 18 percent oppose that idea, according to a Pew Research Center study published Monday.

    Despite there being a separation of church and state, religion plays a significant part in daily US life: the president traditionally is sworn in using a Bible, while “In God We Trust” is printed on bank notes.

    …In the US, the proportion rose to 61 percent among people aged 50 and over, but dropped to 39 percent among 18 to 29-year-olds.

    Meanwhile, in Europe, the sentiment is the exact opposite. There, a desire for increased secularism topped the poll. Yahoo ctd:

    France, Sweden and the Netherlands, meanwhile, posted almost opposite results: 47 percent, 51 percent and 45 percent respectively were opposed to religion playing a key role in society.

    Among the 27 countries surveyed in 2018, France (20 percent) and Japan (15 percent) were the countries with the lowest proportion of citizens favoring strengthening religion’s role in society.

    “Despite there being a separation of church and state, religion plays a significant part in daily US life”

    Hmmmm?

    When you say “religion,” which flavor might you be talking about?

    In Muslim countries religious plays a REALLY BIG AND SIGNIFICANT part of daily life.

    It’s interesting that half of society wants religion to have a larger role in society when attendance continues to decline for many (not all) churches. This fits with a basic understanding — even if one is not religious, one can see the benefit of good religion in a society and culture. You don’t have to be an observant Christian, or a Christian at all, to understand that Christianity offers a lot of good guidance in daily life and organization for a civil, otherwise secular people.

    So more religion in society while at the same time sitting at home on Sunday morning? I can see where a fair number of Americans might be happy with that.

    Omar, Tlaib and obama believe in a god: one who despises Jews.

      Well, if they believe in god, and that god created Jews to mostly be smarter than most other people, why do they dislike Jews? Muslims should respect that Jews are far smarter then they are.
      There is pretty clear evidence that humans were steadily improved, and that earlier humans are poor equipped to compete with newer improved versions:) 🙂 🙂

    In personal life … probably, in society in general … maybe, maybe not, in government … hell no.
