If less than half of us are idiots who don’t understand history or the Constitution, I take that as good news.

32%? Not 27%? That’s the only surprise.

That is well below the supermajorities required to amend the Constitution, and we already know that there is a substantial minority of Americans who want to impose their religious beliefs on others; they are called Republicans. Not coincidentally, 32% was also the percentage of GOP voters in the last election.

huh. Memory says this is down from levels it’s reached in the past, which is actually rather encouraging.

Just last year, wingnuts were apoplectic over a poll showing 40% of American Muslims wanted sharia law. (The poll was by WND, so take that with a huge heap of salt). I wonder how they’ll react to a similar percentage of non-Muslims wanting religious law?

That’s lower than the percentages that believe in young earth creationism.
How the heck do you reconcile that? If I truly believed that g-d created the universe 6000 years ago, why wouldn’t I want his worship enshrined in law?
I’ll take the 37% and 32% as a win.

I don’t, because those people are the fanatics who vote their ignorance every time they go to the polls. Too many of the “enlightened” people don’t think they need bother, because these crackpot ideas could never become law here.

See Kansas, N. Carolina, S. Carolina, Texas, Arizona, Mississippi, and a few other states to see how wrongheaded that idea is.

I used to argue with one of these people… By the time I understood what his beliefs and political agenda were, I found out that it was much worse than I had thought possible.

He’s a guy who tithes and who thinks that tithing should replace taxes. If ending social security and medicare and other programs kills lots of people, creates a lot of suffering among the poor, he’s more than happy with that.

As far as he’s concerned all government programs are evil - it is government taking the place of church. And if church based charity isn’t effective, I doubt that matters either - it’s about people’s souls don’t you know. I called him a monster for that… I think the only result is that he now slanders me when he can.

He’s also a racist who goes on and on about “protecting our European Christian culture”

The worst of people like that are happy thinking of other races as sinful trash who should be pressured into leaving or dying off - and so they’re totally against things like medical care for the poor.

So, a third of the country qualify as neoantidisestablishmentarian.
