Poll Asks Americans to Rate God’s Performance

One week ago today, I was sitting in the terminal at Love Field in Dallas, waiting to catch a flight back to St. Louis, when I noticed something unusual on the television in the waiting area and took a photo.  Perhaps because I was in the middle of writing a post about my mom’s battle with Alzheimer’s, I forgot to share the photo (below) with my readers.

Though I had been paying very little attention to CNN’s coverage of the debt ceiling crisis, I did notice two hard-to-believe lines of text across the bottom of the screen during one glance toward the television:

The first line, in ALL CAPS, asked, “WHAT IF GOD WERE ONE OF US” (minus a question mark); and

In slightly-smaller type, a second line explained, “Poll: 52% of Americans approve of God’s job performance.”

Why would anyone think those questions worthy and/or appropriate as poll fodder?  Because a Democrat group, Public Policy Polling, was behind the effort.  Need I say more?  That’s what I thought, too.

In reality, some of the poll results are actually quite pleasing. For instance, The Daily Mail reports, God did better than Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) and both Republicans and Democrats in Congress, who all had a 33 percent approval rating.

NewsMax offered a rundown on the poll results July 24.  If, however, you want to watch CNN’s broadcast version of the poll story, visit the “In The Arena” blog (where Eliot Spitzer used to hang out with some chick named Kathleen Parker).

There.  Now, I can delete the photo from my phone.

  1. God’s job performance?
    Two words.
    A gift.

    1) FREE! 2) WILL!

    We all have it. What have we done with it?
    Individually and as a planet.

  2. I don’t believe in God, because I have a tough time finding truth in the bible. Adam Was created from dust and Eve from a bone? I just don’t see it. The whole world floods and Noah builds an ark to one day repopulate the world? I respect your religion I just can’t see it, please make me a believer I wish I was.

  3. Elyk, If Israel, Iran and Russia get into a shooting war, lets chat. That exact scenario was for cast in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 long long ago. And consider self replicating DNA. Now that is Holy, I mean high tech!
