More than half of Americans believe God has a special relationship with the US, a new poll has revealed.
In total, 53 per cent of 1,000 people surveyed agreed with the statement that God has a special relationship with America; a figure that rose to 67 per cent of evangelical Christians.
African Americans were also among the most likely to share the belief, at 62 per cent, along with 59 per cent of Southerners.
“‘God bless America’ is more than a song or a prayer for many Americans. It is a belief that God has blessed America beyond what is typical for nations throughout history,” explained Ed Stetzer, executive director of LifeWay research. “I am sure that would spawn many theological conversations.”
