This fact sheet reports that young people who attend religious services are more likely to vote and volunteer. The data also showed that those who attend religious services regularly are more likely than their counterparts to belong to groups involved in politics, display a campaign button or sign, and donate money to candidates or a party.

    I don’t like this conclusion that is made from the statistics. I don’t see the connection between the religious interests and the political believes.

    You know that I’d like to see more modern statistics. It seems to me that last time the sight changed. Because I have two sons, who are 18.
