What Do We Know About Faith?

Posted Monday, March 7, 2011

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

It turns out religious people may not actually know all that much about religion -- even their own. A recent national survey found that atheists and agnostics knew more than the devout. On the next Sound of Ideas, we offer an encore presentation of a program in which we examine the survey and discuss whether you need to know the details of your religion to be truly faithful. Does the entrance to heaven involve a multiple choice quiz? Join us at Monday at 9 on 90.3.
