Survey Reveals 'Cultural Divide' Between White House, Churchgoing Americans

January 26, 2012

The annual Spiritual State of the Nation survey by Truth in Action Ministries of more than 6,800 evangelical Americans found deep disagreement with the Obama administration's policies and an overwhelming mistrust of the president, according to TIAM's John Aman. Just 2 percent of respondents said they trusted President Obama, and only 9 percent trusted the government to keep the nation safe. Ninety-eight percent opposed giving taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, 99 percent opposed same-sex marriage, 85 percent opposed allowing open homosexuals to serve in the U.S. military, and 95 percent favored a federal amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Jerry Newcombe, co-host of Truth That Transforms with Dr. D. James Kennedy, said: "This survey reveals a gaping cultural divide between our current White House and ordinary church-going Americans who embrace biblical morality and want traditional values reflected in our nation's laws. It's no wonder that so many in the Christian community deeply mistrust the president."
