If you were running for President of the United States and you had never been a religious person, but you needed to choose a religion to pretend to be to make the most people vote for you, what religion would you chose, and do you think it would work?
How do you think these numbers have changed in the last fifty years and in the last 10 years?*
How different do you think these numbers will be in the future?**
How do you think the fact that 71% of all Americans are Christians impacts American politics?
Is it reasonable to think that a country that is 71% Christian is going to have a high wall of separation between church and state?
Fact: one out of every 100 Americans is Muslim. What do you think the average American would guess that number is?
