Fifty-seven percent of Republicans polled in national survey back establishing Christianity as the “national religion” of the United States.
In a survey of Republicans and their presidential preferences, taken over the weekend, Public Policy Polling asked: “Would you support or oppose establishing Christianity as the national religion of the United States.
The results: 57 percent said yes, 30 percent answered no, with 13 percent undecided.
The opinion flies in the face of the establishment clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which declares:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Then there’s this in Article 6: “…no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
