We've been fed a lie by the left that says religion is evil.
In 2010, renowned political scientists Robert Putnam and David Campbell (of Harvard University and University of Notre Dame, respectively) conducted the most comprehensive study of American religion in history.
The authors analyzed the results of the Faith Matters Survey, which was conducted by International Communications Research on behalf of Harvard University.
The national survey interviewed roughly 3,100 Americans in an hour-long phone survey both about their religion (beliefs, belonging and behavior) and their social and political engagement. The data provided precise measurements of religious belief and behavior to help scholars determine their relative stability among different sub-populations and as compared to nonreligious beliefs and behaviors.
