More Great News About Our Religion
According to a new Baylor study, at least 10% of those who claim "no religion" nonetheless identify with a congregation. The study concludes that America is more religious than has recently been suggested--with other surveys showing that we've become slightly more secular since 1990. The Baylor study attributes this mistake primarily to the growth in non-denominational churches, leaving more people feeling like they don't have a religion but do have a church. But that's not the part that struck me. It's this: 31% of Americans believe in an authoritarian God who is highly judgmental and highly involved in their daily affairs and world events.

And also God accomplishes this by transporting himself from person to person on a team of invisible unicorns.
