From “Chicks on the Right”

This is wonderful to hear on Good Friday!
Contrary to what you may have been hearing in the news lately, there is still a good majority of Americans that believe in the main tenets of Christianity.
A new poll conducted by Rasmussen has the breakdown –
Two-out-of-three Americans still believe the central tenets of Christianity, that Jesus Christ was the son of God who was resurrected on Easter Day.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 78% of American Adults believe the person known to history as Jesus Christ actually walked the earth about 2,000 years ago. Eleven percent (11%) do not believe that’s true, and another 11% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Sixty-seven percent (67%) believe Jesus was the son of God who came to earth to die for our sins. Nineteen percent (19%) don’t share that belief. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.
Sixty-six percent (66%) of Americans believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Twenty-one percent (21%) do not. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I have been feeling a little discouraged that my religious beliefs aren’t welcome in America or that my fellow Christians have been scared into silence by a handful of liberal bullies. But this is awesome to see that, yes, America is still a Christian nation, despite all attempts to change that.
Hope you all have a lovely Easter!
