Results of Recent Harris Poll on Religious Beliefs

Link from David:

Perhaps the most striking of the results is the cultural disparity with regard to legislating protection of religious expression: "More than half (58%) of Italians believe that governments should legislate against forms of religious blasphemy, such as depriving something of its sacred character (for example, burning a bible or the Koran). This view was less prevalent in Spain (46%), France (42%), Germany (41%), Great Britain (37%), and the U.S. (31%)"
