  •  Are Mormons included in the Christian total? (3+ / 0-)

    Most other Christian groups do not consider them Christian.   Of course, they can consider themselves whatever they want.

    And does the Mormon % include both SLC and Independence MO groups, the latter not considered legitimate byt the former?

    Which is precisely the kind of parsing you will get into by recognizing one religion and prohibiting recognition of others.

    Can I get an Aztec plate?  How about for worshippers of Baal?  Samaritans?  The later two, after all, at least appear in the OT and NT respectively.

    do we still have a Republic and a Constitution if our elected officials will not stand up for them on our behalf?

    •  Click on the Wiki link above and (0+ / 0-)

      scroll down to 'ARIS Findings'.  Mormon is listed under Other Protestant Denominations.

      Excerpt:

      The United States government does not collect religious data in its census. The survey below, the American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) 2008, was a random digit-dialed telephone survey of 54,461 American residential households in the contiguous United States. The 1990 sample size was 113,723; 2001 sample size was 50,281.

      Adult respondents were asked the open-ended question, "What is your religion, if any?" Interviewers did not prompt or offer a suggested list of potential answers. The religion of the spouse or partner was also asked. If the initial answer was "Protestant" or "Christian" further questions were asked to probe which particular denomination. About one third of the sample was asked more detailed demographic questions.

      This is a very comprehensive Wiki entry and would be good for refuting pseudo 'facts' from the far right.
