Old news, but it has just come to my attention. Apparently it is true when they say that fundamentalists are not as prolific as they seem. Because 65% to 70% of Christians in America believe that people of other religions can go to Heaven, including the nonreligious and atheists (more the former than the latter, for whatever reason). Man... are they becoming divorced from traditional beliefs in these times, or what? It's kinda nice! Makes you wonder how long it will be until we finally get a majority in support of gay rights. It's looking even more possible all of a sudden.
Oh, but apparently there was either some sort of error in this chart, or we are really despised by the black people. See for yourself (well...if you can read through the blur).
Heartening news, overall. Even if I am still a little curious about why some of them even bother to call themselves Christian given how little of the religion they actually believe. I might not have needed to hear this kind of statistic in order to go on living in this country if they were brave enough to more accurately label themselves (though I guess it is hard to come up with a name for someone who is Christian but doesn't think Jesus was a divine entity. "Judaism with New Testament supplement" doesn't have a good ring to it).
Could Atheism Replace Religion?
