'U.S. Religious Landscape Survey out today

The soon to be release (in about an hour or so ) The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life's second part of its landmark 'U.S. Religious Landscape Survey.' The 294-pager is based on interviews in English and Spanish with 35,000 adults in the U.S. That sample is large enough to provide rare reliable data on smaller religious traditions -- including Mormons, who are off the charts in every measure of devotion in the survey. There's a news-making revelation about Americans' view of heaven and hell. And which state prays the most (Deep South), and goes to church the least (New England)? The details of this report is always very interesting on how people define and re-define faith in the U.S.
