God Favours the US

16 September, 2006
  • Nearly one fifth of Americans believe that God favours the United States in worldly affairs.
  • The belief that God favours the United States is the single strongest predictor of whether an individual trusts Bush, approves of the Patriot Act, thinks Hussein was involved in 9/11, and approves of the Iraq War. 
  • Nearly half of Americans identify themselves as “Bible-believing”.
  • The Biblical literalist Catholic is as politically conservative as the Biblical literalist who is Evangelical or Mainline Protestant.

  • Individuals who feel strongly that God is a “he” tend towards belief in an Authoritarian God.
