According to a survey commissioned by the Anti-Defamation League, “American Attitudes Toward Religion in the Public Square,” nearly two-thirds of American citizens believe that religion is under siege, presumably threatened by the remaining third of citizens who, though vastly outnumbered, are presumably better-equipped with their fierce powers of sarcasm and disdain honed in elite, Northeastern universities. No wait, this is the ADL, not the Family Research Council. What’s the call to arms then? The fact that, in the words of ADL National Director Abraham Foxman, “‘too many people believe that religion is under attack, when in fact according to all measurements, religion is stronger in the United States than in any other Western country.'” Foxman continued to argue that such a response indicated a serious threat to America’s tradition of church-state separation. Not a new argument, but a few new numbers, such as 53% of respondents believing that religion is losing influence in American life; 64% believing it’s important to publicly display religious symbols such as the Ten Commandments; 56% supporting the teaching of the biblical story of creation alongside evolution; and 47% supporting school prayer.
