Religion Brings Well Being!

Your health may depend on how “religious” you are! Consider this recent study:

“Research conducted by Gallup, as well as the research of others in recent years, confirms that religiousness — usually defined by frequent religious service attendance and importance of religion in one’s daily life — positively correlates with indicators of emotional and physical well-being. People in the U.S., who are the most religious, have less worry, less anger and less stress, and are happier. They are less likely to have been diagnosed as depressed, evaluate their life better, eat healthier, smoke less, and report better physical health.”

Maybe government should mandate lower insurance premiums for those who attend church weekly?

No, thanks!

Government should stay out of religion and respect the “free exercise thereof.” We are endowed by our “Creator with certain unalienable rights” and Government exists to “secure these rights” not squash them!
