Title.

Baylor made the Washington Post today. Some sociology professors have done this massive study across the United States on religion and had some interesting findings. You can read about it here and I highly recommend it. One of the professors involved, Dr. Paul Froese, was my intro to sociology prof three years ago. It was his first semester at Baylor then and he pretty much came just to be involved in this study. He was VERY excited about it and talked to us about it all the time. I'm glad to see that they finished part of it and have some good results to show.

Dr. Froese was also the guy to get me interested in living wage issues. He had us read Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America. This was the first time I really started thinking about the working poor and it got the ball rolling for the rest of my time at Baylor and all that I was involved in with Baylor Students for Social Justice and the 1 John 3 Campaign.

So good job Dr. Froese and all the other profs who are involved in the study. I think that they are still working on it and are going to be doing more surveys and stuff in 2007. At least, according to another article I read about it.

It would be interesting to see, what percentage of these people is "fake" religious.
