Theocracy Polls

Here are the results of the recent polls. Shuck and Jive readers appear for the most part to know the importance of separating church and state. I wonder how these results would compare with the country at large? I can think of no reason except theocratic (or prejudice) for basing U.S. law on the bible, officially endorsing Jesus Christ, denying marriage to same-sex couples, or teaching intelligent design.

Upon What Guide Should the United States Base Its Law and Governance?
The Holy Bible

The U.S. Constitution

9 (9%)
No
