Poll: Religious Liberty Threatened

A new Barna poll shows about half of all Americans are concerned that religious freedom is at risk in the country. A large number of them say they believe activist groups are making an attempt to remove “traditional Christian values” from the public square. Here's the breakdown.

How concerned are you that religious liberties are under threat in the U.S.?
Very - 29%
Somewhat - 22%

71% of Evangelicals responding to the question answered "very" or "somewhat" while 97% of Evangelicals agreed with the statement “some groups have actively tried to move society away from traditional Christian values.”

A poll by Religion News Service and the Public Religion Research Institute nearly a year ago found 56% of Americans did NOT feel that religious freedom was under attack in this nation. The Barna poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
