So what about the rest of the survey answers? more than 60% believe that the US is a “nation of many religions”. Only 9% believe it to be a secular nation.

According to this study, Americans think that America is not welcoming to Muslims, as 35% have stated so.

“AMERICANS ARE DEEPLY COMMITTED TO RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, BUT THEY CAN LOOK AT TODAY’S CULTURE AND SEE AMERICA DOES NOT ALWAYS WELCOME EVERYONE,” – SCOTT MCCONNELL OF LIFEWAY RESEARCH.

It is also a belief that atheists are quite welcomed in America. 67% of Christians  say America is a welcoming place for atheists. Young Americans between the ages of 18-24 see America as welcoming country for Muslims and atheists.

As you can see, most Americans still uphold the right to religious freedom and many of its aspects. The votes from the survey convey that the freedom to run your business coinciding with your religious beliefs is the least likely to be considered an American right.

Dear God,

We ask that you may help guide this nation in the right course. We know that your path is the only righteous path we need to walk on. We ask that you open the eyes of those who doubt you and give us insight to use the tools you have given us, to help their hearts see the truth. The people of the nations are yearning to quench their thirst for a spiritual connection with you. For all the people of the nations we pray on your behalf.   Amen.
