Each Saturday I’ll post interesting stats I’ve come across in the research for my current book on the secular/religious mixed marriage, mostly without comment. Here’s the first.
Of those who believe that someone outside their own religion can go to heaven, the following include the nonreligious in that number:
Evangelical Protestant: 35%
Mainline Protestant: 62%
(Pew Forum Religion & Public Life Survey, Aug 2008)
(Confused about the Nones and the Mormons? See tomorrow’s post.)
