I see the poll as a good sign, that we are evolving, little by little free thinking will replace mindless dogma... and all of humanity will benefit from this transition.

What makes you so certain that you and your religion of choice are correct. Maybe you were just born in the wrong country. Someone elses god is disappointed in you and is certain that you are going to find out how terribly wrong you are.

A Representative Republic in which we live, can only work for a citizenship that believes in Christian God.
Look at the societies which do not have a majority of its citizens believe in God. Totalarian dictatorships, and other substandard governmental regimes.
The most free thing in the world is FREE THINKING.
Many of you exercize FREE SPEECH as a lousy substitute for it,
I am referring to the 29% that do not believe in the existence of God - THEY will learn how terribly wrong they are when it is their time. And God will forgive them if they wish His forgiveness.
They are all basically the same God, just different interpretations, customs, tenets, beliefs etc... of the Ultimate Creator. Do you honestly think that God can't recognize the flaws and limitations of man and account for it? God forgives those who seek forgiveness.

You speak of religion as "controlling." How so? My faith leads me to be true to my wife, to help my fellow man despite faith, love my family, to be charitable, loving, giving, forgiving, trusting, to strive for morality and ethics, all good ideals weither you believe or not.
