Which is to say, liberals are a minority

New information regarding our attitudes about Christmas, from the Religion and Public Life Project of Pew Research:
Nine-in-ten Americans say they celebrate Christmas, and three-quarters say they believe in the virgin birth of Jesus. But only about half see Christmas mostly as a religious holiday, while one-third view it as more of a cultural holiday. Virtually all Christians (96%) celebrate Christmas, and two-thirds see it as a religious holiday. In addition, fully eight-in-ten non-Christians in America also celebrate Christmas, but most view it as a cultural holiday rather than a religious occasion.
The research shows that among those who view Christmas as a religious holiday, fewer are likely to attend church services on Christmas than was the case in years past. Read more.
