America is largely a Christian nation with 77 percent of adults identifying themselves as Christian, according to a Gallup survey, while only 0.6 percent identified as Muslim.
“The United States remains a largely Christian nation; more than 9 in 10 Americans who have a religious identity are affiliated with a Christian religion,” reported Gallup on Dec. 24. “There has been little change in this portrait of religious identity in the U.S. from last year.”
Gallup interviewed more than 326,000 Americans between January and November 2012 and found that 77.3 percent identified with a Christian faith: 51.9 percent Protestant/Other Christian; 23.3 percent Catholic; and 2.1 percent Mormon.
Another 1.7 percent identified as Jewish; 0.6 percent identified as Muslim; and 2.6 percent as “Other/non-Christian.”
The number of American adults who said they had no religious identity was up over last year, from 15.0 percent to 15.6 percent.
This is the same CNSNews.com that published a comment piece in 2010 titled “Is Obama a Muslim?” It concluded that while the president was not in fact a Muslim he might just as well have been, since “he does support the islamification of America that is taking place”.
