Survey of Religious Beliefs In Bodily Resurrection, U.S.A.
Great post by Mark Regnerus at First Things on Christian belief in a bodily resurrection amongst Americans. Head on over and read it. But if you do not, just take some time to look at this graphic he presented. Note two very interesting facts. First, Mormons have the strongest belief in a resurrection by far, and the kind of Christians that scare everybody (evangelicals, fundies, pentecostals) are next. Even so, 75% belief among regular attenders is a scandalously low, albeit unsurprsing, number. Second, liberal Protestants have a much higher rate of belief in resurrection than liberal Catholics, which tells us that liberal Protestants are less nominal than some conservatives might think..
