North Carolinians Strongly Support Religious Freedom!

With critical religious freedom legislation currently pending in the North Carolina General Assembly, a new poll released Tuesday finds overwhelming support among registered voters for a state law protecting religious liberty. The telephone survey, conducted for our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom by Clout Research on April 16-19, asked 819 registered voters a series of questions about religious freedom, and found significant support for religious liberty protections in North Carolina across “all demographic and philosophical lines.”

According to the poll’s findings:

  • 90 percent agreed that, North Carolinians “should have the right to exercise their own personal freedom of religion.”
  • 77 percent agreed that, “North Carolinians’ religious freedoms should be protected under state law.”
  • 82 percent agreed that, “citizens of North Carolina who have had their religious freedoms violated by the government [should] be able to get a fair hearing of their grievances in court.”
  • 85 percent agreed that, “North Carolinians should be free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by the government.”
  • 65 percent agreed that, “there should be a law here in North Carolina that requires the government to prove in court that it is absolutely necessary to violate a citizen’s religious freedoms before it violates that freedom.”
