American Religiosity

I’ve heard a ton of pastors expressing that a recession might be a really good thing for the American Church. Here’s an interesting article on a recent Gallup Pole taken on the topic:

Despite suggestions that the economic recession might cause religiosity among Americans to increase, there has been no evident change over the past 15 months in either Americans’ self-reported church attendance or the importance of religion in their daily lives. Forty-two percent on average have reported attending church every week or nearly every week during that time, and 65% have reported that religion is important in their daily lives. These results are based on an analysis of more than 425,000 interviews Gallup has conducted since January 2008.
