The Weekly Number: "5 Advances in Understanding Religious Freedom"

Really interesting numbers -- here -- from Pew.  Some of them go against the conventional wisdom (e.g., those who are unaffiliated with a religious tradition tend to be older, not younger).  Of particular interest to those of us who work on church-state relations, is this:   "There is an association between government restrictions on religion and social hostilities involving religion."  (This is a conclusion that my friend and colleague Dan Philpott and his co-authors support in their recent book, God's Century.)
