Survey: Most Americans Now Believe You Do Not Need God to be Good | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

To my surprise, a new survey out today from the Pew Research Center finds that the majority of Americans — 54% — say you do not need God to be moral. Only 44% of people in the U.S. believe God is a prerequisite for morality, a sharp decline from when this question was last asked in 2002, when that same number was 58%.
