The Latest Polls About Religion

What do people really think about hot button issues like abortion, the separation of church and state, gay marriage, etc? The latest public opinion surveys from Gallup, Zogby, The New York Times, Newsweek and others may surprise you.

At a time when the presence of religion in American puplic life is more obvious, the latest polls are revealing. For example, you've probably read about certain Roman Catholic bishops refusing communion to Catholic candidates who oppose the church's teaching on issues like abortion. But what do Catholic voters think about this?

In a recent CBS News poll, Catholic voters were asked: "Do you think it is appropriate for Catholic bishops to refuse to give communion to elected officials who publicly disagree with the Church's position on issues like abortion, or is that not appropriate?" In this instance only 17% of Catholics agreed with their bishops on this one, while 78% disagreed.
