Silk on Gallup's Survey

The Sage of Hartford, Mark Silk,  looks at Gallup's latest survey on Americans' perceptions of the influence of religion. As ever, he brings a scholar's cautions to the data and enlightens the findings for the rest of us. Silk is an example of contemporary scholarship at its best, using the resources of the academy to comment on events, and in a manner, accessible to the rest of us. Good stuff.
