A New Study Finds Americans Broadly Support Religious Liberty. Sign of the Future or Remnant of the Past?

Whew — Wednesday was a big day for surveys.

And one shows that two-thirds of Americans support the protection of religious liberty.

Commissioned by the nonprofit Becket Fund, the study reveals that 67% of Americans endorse the freedom to exercise spiritual belief, determined by a list of questions regarding a variety of issues from religious pluralism to the societal role of churches and separation of church and state.

The report concludes thusly:

“Even after decades of religious freedom being pulled into the culture wars, Americans accept and support a broad interpretation of religious freedom. Americans are uncomfortable with the idea of the government penalizing groups and individuals for living out their religious beliefs.”

That sounds pretty good, huh?

Although, I wouldn’t consider 67 a great score — it’s a high D.

How far back do you think we’d have to go to find a tally north of 90?
