New Harvard Research Says U.S. Christianity Is Growing Stronger

The percentage of Americans who attend church more than once a week, pray daily, and accept the Bible as wholly reliable and deeply instructive to their lives has remained absolutely, steel-bar constant for the last 50 years or more, right up to today. These authors describe this continuity as “patently persistent.”

The percentage of such people is also not small. One in three Americans prays multiple times a day, while one in 15 do so in other countries on average. Attending services more than once a week continues to be twice as high among Americans compared to the next highest-attending industrial country, and three times higher than the average comparable nation.


How often I pray depends on whether the Padres are playing.

"and accept the Bible as wholly reliable": you are clearly well provided with bloody fools.

A man may be a Christian without being a fool, but the Bible as WHOLLY reliable? Mere superstition.
