The United States is a very religious people (so long as you listen to our rhetoric rather than check our deeds).
NBC's Today Show has been covering young Colton Burpo and his alleged visit to the celestial realms. They are taking a poll which asks: Do you believe in heaven?
As I'm writing this the results thus far are:
I'm not sure, but I hope so!: 10.3%

And round and around the mulberry bush we go!
