Más estadounidenses desean que las iglesias no se metan en política

Una investigación del prestigiado centro Pew muestra un cambio en el pensamiento político de Estados Unidos: los americanos parecen se están hartando de la influencia de la religión en la política. Copio del site del Centro Pew:

More Americans Question Religion's Role in Politics

Some Social Conservative Disillusionment


Some Americans are having a change of heart about mixing religion and politics. A new survey finds a narrow majority of the public saying that churches and other houses of worship should keep out of political matters and not express their views on day-to-day social and political matters. For a decade, majorities of Americans had voiced support for religious institutions speaking out on such issues.

The new national survey by the Pew Research Center reveals that most of the reconsideration of the desirability of religious involvement in politics has occurred among conservatives. Four years ago, just 30% of conservatives believed that churches and other houses of worship should stay out of politics. Today, 50% of conservatives express this view.

As a result, conservatives' views on this issue are much more in line with the views of moderates and liberals than was previously the case. Similarly, the sharp divisions between Republicans and Democrats that previously existed on this issue have disappeared.
