God has an ‘approval rating’?

September 30, 2011


I usually put a lot of faith in surveys.

I’m not so sure about this one.

Public Policy Polling has released the following bit of, well, I’m not sure “information” is the correct description, but you’ll see what I mean:

When asked if they approved of God’s performance, 52% of Americans say they approve, while 9% disapprove, and 40% aren’t sure. (Note, some rounding in the math!)

As a practicing Catholic, I realize I’m biased, but even though I consider myself middle-of-the road and certainly not conservative, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that the traditional perspective here may very well be the correct one.

Friends, it ain’t us judging God’s performance that matters. It’s the other way around.

Ready for your own “performance review to end all performance reviews?”
