Did you know...

that Rasmussen says 64% of Americans pray at least once a day and 61% think that their should be prayer in schools? I was surprised by this considering how our world is today, but I have to admit it is a bit refreshing!

  • There IS prayer in schools. Just not teacher LED prayers. NO ONE is stopping anyone from praying anywhere.

  • Was EVERY American out there asked because I don't recall being asked. It's easy to get that response if you poll only people in the Bible Belt for instance.

  • Isn't it a shame that people don't understand WHAT was taken out of schools?

    I'm with you IhartU ... I don't recall being asked and I DO live in the Bible Belt.

  • Just wondering what the reputation of Rasmussen is? I seriously thought this was a good source but there seems to be a group of moms that think if they personally weren't asked it is not a worthy poll. Hmm go figure.


    Thanks for the information AF4life I will proceed to get many down votes now that will tell me just how many do read my responses :)

  • " I was surprised by this considering how our world is today, but I have to admit it is a bit refreshing!"

    This is funny....if THAT many people are praying...then why do you think the world is "how it is today"? Maybe people aren't praying the right prayers?

  • Rasmussen is a conservative leaning org. I don't put much stock in their polls.
    I believe that a great deal of people pray daily. Prayers is kind of universal. Not much to dispute there.
    I am a Catholic and I do not want prayer in public schools and I know few people who do want it.

    Please, don't, that is rude and insulting to my faith. Gods are not ATMs to be begged for favors. Praying FOR anyone or anything is horribly crude.
