Where the world comes to study the Bible

Disagree

A Glamour magazine survey of 25,000 readers, most of them women between the ages of 18 and 35, reflects a powerful swing to life’s spiritual side: 77% pray, and 87% feel that God is always helping them or has helped them through a particular period in their lives. These readers seem to choose aspects of their religion they can live with and ignore what they can’t, without discarding their faith. For example, the poll finds that nearly half disagree with their church’s teaching on premarital sex, and a third (42% of the single women) disagree with their religion on abortion.
