Gallup Organization Refutes Story Saying "Societies Worse Off 'When They Have God on Their Side' "

David Virtue VirtueOnline 10/10/05

    [Not actually from the Gallup organization, is from George Gallup Jr., who after his letter to the
London
    Times
was rejected, posted it on this right wing blog. Gallup Jr. has stated that "When I ask a question
    on these subjects, what I'm always trying to find out is: 'Are we doing the will of God?," "The world
    knows a lot about Jesus, but do they know him? It is for the churches to seize this moment, to take the
    vague spirituality of the day and turn it into faith that is solid and transformative," and "We know so little
    about mystical experiences, yet the religious dynamic is perhaps the most powerful of all in American
    culture. This is a way to unite our country on a deep level and produce a more peaceful
    world." (www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2004/139/31.0.html)]
