A new survey finds a sharp decline in belief that the U.S. holds special place in history. Could the coronavirus be to blame?
A new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute found that, for the first time since the nonpartisan organization began asking the question in 2011, a majority of Americans say they disagree with the statement “God has granted America a special role in human history.”
According to the 2020 American Values Survey, 40% percent of Americans agreed with that statement, while 58% disagree. And, “Notably, the share of Americans who completely disagree (40%) has nearly doubled since the question was last asked, in the lead-up to the 2016 election (22%),” the report said.
Among other findings, 62% of Americans say their country is not currently or never has been a Christian nation, and only one-quarter believe that the U.S. is a good moral example to the rest of the world. And the number of people who say you need to believe in God to be a moral person has fallen by 10 percentage points in four years, from 49% to 39%.

pamz: Is this a good place to put a question??? This board seems to have been well organized and energetic. What's happened? I know message boards can lose energy...is that it? Or, was it something else? Did the furious finger of GAWD strike you?
