Interesting survey by the Economist on various topics. One section shows that 80% of Americans believe in god, but when it comes to who should get a tax break, 35% believe the middle-income families deserve it compared to 20% for the poor. Compare this with 40% believe in god in the UK and 40% of people believing the poor should get the tax cuts. Seems that being devout has little correlation to being charitable or having concern for those less well off.
