    surveys don't make distinctions between "fundaloon christian" and, say, "unitarian universalist."  all surveys show is that X% (unfortunately, a majority) of the u.s. population is christian.

    and that gives the fundie assholes the ammo they need to keep trying to turn this country into a theocracy.

    The first part of this is, as stated, false. Many surveys do distinguish among kinds of Christians — not necessarily between fundaloons and Unitarians, but in a variety of ways.

    As for the argument that the percentage of Americans who self-identify as Christian gives fundies "the ammo they need"... evidence? Fundies can try to win arguments by appealing indiscriminately to the percentage of the population that is Christian, but why would it work?
