Half of Americans back stronger role of religion in society
Around half of Americans favor religion playing a greater role in US society, while 18 percent oppose that idea, according to a Pew Research Center study published Monday.

Despite there being a separation of church and state, religion plays a significant part in daily US life: the president traditionally is sworn in using a Bible, while "In God We Trust" is printed on bank notes.

France, Sweden and the Netherlands, meanwhile, posted almost opposite results: 47 percent, 51 percent and 45 percent respectively were opposed to religion playing a key role in society.

Among the 27 countries surveyed in 2018, France (20 percent) and Japan (15 percent) were the countries with the lowest proportion of citizens favoring strengthening religion's role in society. ...

Religion??

Acts 26:5 Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.

Galatians 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

Galatians 1:14 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers."

Same again = Ye must be born again.
Human effort doesn't work. Just look at the Liberalist churches.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day."

Did the survey ask how religious the people being polled were, and which religion do they belong to?
I would imagine Jewish people would not vote yes when they only remember the Holocaust and how Lutherans and Catholics in Germany went along with it.
I would imagine Muslim people would vote yes because their religion is much more than just a Friday night thing, or not eating during daylight hours in Ramadan, or praying 5 times a day. Theirs is a total governing system, so there is no such thing as a Muslim view on politics. There is no politics--it all falls under their religion. There is no science, music or art--since they all are controlled by the religion. Ever heard of a Muslim Orchestra of Saudi Arabia? Any Muslim Great Composers you can name? Any great Muslim film directors, painters, sculptors, architects?

Pastors - while I agree to a certain degree, faith in Christ is the foundation of the church's salt & light, which is really just a compilation of the church officers' and congregants' behaviors in general anyway. I doubt you are arguing for morality just for morality's sake, but so an watching world knows...Jesus Christ is the answer to this problem.

...Our ancestors established their system of government on morality and religious sentiment. Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely be trusted on any other foundation than religious principle, nor any government be secure which is not supported by moral habits...Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens...

We should remember that the church is supposed to be the moral agent of salt and light, therefore the government and authorities that God has ordained as well as the church should not diminish this God given role of religion.

Without quibbling with the content and waxing completely into the theoretical, one might imagine that a stronger moral fiber is desired within American society. As such, reapondents could have pointed to "religion" as the source of that missing morality, civility, and broader focus beyond one's solitary, self-absorbed interest. "Religion" solves little of this but only makes adherents more miserable. Saving faith in Jesus Christ that leads to repentence unto life brings about all of those desired outcomes.

His yoke is easy and His burden light, but He and His burden are often shunned as incompatible with modern ideals regarding morality, relationships, self-sacrifice, etc.

I didn't read the Pew's survey results, but the examples of "religion" in everyday life that the news snippet captured are hardly examples. The President has been sworn in every four years since Reagan took office. That's not everyday. I don't bother to read all the writing on the bills or coins I pass over to the cashier, just the denomination of the bills or maybe the picture to ensure I'm paying the proper amount and recieving the correct change. Most often, though, my credit card gets used. It's like asking how many homes have a Bible. The real question is how often that Bible gets opened and read, then how long is it read when it is read?

The religion of humanism has full authority in the US now. It’s not a good thing either. False religion brings problems, doesn’t it?

There was a time in the UK when religion had full authority. It was the Roman Catholic religion, and it was not a good thing.
