In spite of my recent post gloating otherwise, my favorite cafeteria partner and Savannah Morning News religion editor
In 2006, 58% of those polled felt positively about Jews, and placed the mellow Methodists in second place at 55%. Yet in a recent Gallup poll conducted at the end of March of the year, only 46% polled felt favorably about Jews, pushing the Methodists ahead with 49%. I’m going to let those Methodists have their day in the sun, now that they’ve dropped that whole divestment nastiness. (In case you’re wondering, Scientogists are still licking the bottom of the barrel, in spite of Tom Cruise’s
propaganda appearance on Oprah last week.)
I can understand an overall decline in Americans digging on religion in general, but what’s up with the negative 12 point gap?
I blame Eliot Spitzer.
