Poll Results I Pray For

Over at The Blaze, they did a very interesting poll on gun ownership.  Here's a bit:

  • 100% believe in the right to bear arms
  • 85% are at least 35-years
  • 80% are homeowners
  • 78% have children
  • 76% are married
  • 73% served in the U.S. military or have an immediate family member serving
  • 71% of the respondents are male
  • 66% own dogs  (36% have cats)
  • 63% have more than one gun
  • 54% read more than 12 books a year
  • 52% have taken a firearms safety class
I'm glad they have so many people fighting for their Second Amendment Rights, but I'm stuck on something else.

 I wish they had done a poll to show how many Catholics were concerned about the First Amendment, and that the results would look like this:

  • 100% believe life is a gift from God that begins at conception.
  • 85% are at least 21 years of age.
  • 80% are married to a member of the opposite sex.  The rest are priests, members of a religious order, or praying about their vocation to matrimony or religious life.
  • 78% have children, and hope to have more.  The rest aren't married, or are recently married.
  • 76% attend Mass every day. The rest live in urban faith deserts, and attend Mass as often as possible.
  • 73% served in some church service organization, or have an immediate family member serving.
  • 71% of the married couples use natural family planning.  The rest are pregnant now.
  • 66% say the rosary every day. The rest never learned how, but are asking a friend or a priest to teach them.
  • 63% have more than one rosary.
  • 54% read more than 12 books of the Bible every year.
  • 52% have taken a religious retreat in the last year.
Wouldn't it be better world?
