That 41% disagree really surprises That a majority of the public (59%) disagrees with this item shocks me. I would have bet at most only 25% would disagree with this statement; I also would have predicted that religiously inclined people would be much more likely to agree with it.
Can someone explain--and in way that can be tested (i.e., no just-so stories that evade corroboration)?
Thanks to @NIV for noting that I had a reverse-coding misadventure. Of course, that makes the result even more startling to me!
