    A majority of Democrats -- 52 percent -- say they seldom or never go to church, according to Gallup data published this week, CNSNews.com reports. Twenty percent of Democrats said they went to church nearly weekly or monthly, while 27 percent said they went every week.

    As for Republicans, 38 percent said they seldom or never went, while 21 percent said they went nearly weekly or monthly and 40 percent said they went every week. According to the data, Democrats are less religious than the typical American and Republicans are more religious, Gallup says. A related study shows that self-professed conservatives now outnumber self-professed liberals in the United States, 42 percent to 21 percent.

    I really do believe this is more important than most like to think. I truly believe the further you move away from God,the more lost you become. I think Church is important.

    Another one from the 'holier than thou' brigade trying to imply that church goers are better people than those who don't go. :cuckoo:

    I know some are gonna get real snotty and start up with the predictable "Evil Hypocrite" rhetoric,but i guess i held out hope for something different. Church is a very comforting and uplifting experience. I think more Americans should attend. Being with God really does soothe the soul.
