Something’s Not Right Here

Saw this poll’s results and thought, “Hmm, lots to be gleamed here”.

The one that got me was this, which I suspect is determined by the wording of the poll:

Approximately half of all adult Americans (53 percent) indicate they personally read the Bible once a month or more. There are fewer non-Bible readers ages 55 and older than in any other age group. Eighteen percent of those age 55 and older never read the Bible, whereas 26 percent of Americans 35 to 54 and 28 percent of those under 35 never read it.

Once a month or more. Imagine kissing your significant other once a month or more. Imagine hugging your kids once a month or more. Yet here we have a poll asking about one of the two primary ways believers commune with God, and the question is “once a month or more”.

As I say, the result is likely due to the wording of the poll, but it makes you wonder just what we accept, because it seems to be the inevitable trend.
