More tsunami poll results

CNN / USA Today / Gallop commissioned a poll this week to determine American interest in and actions taken following the Asian tsunami disaster. The key findings:

• 46% of Americans are following tsunami news “very closely”, and another 43% are following it “somewhat closely”.

• 45% of Americans have donated money to relief efforts, but 26% have not thought about donating money.

• 74% of Americans “have prayed for victims and families”, and only 19% have not thought about praying.

Digging deeper into the poll results, we find that among the 74% who are praying for victims:

• 44% are aware that most of the victims of the tsunami do not believe in their God. (88% of those who are aware that most of the victims do not believe in their God have restricted their prayers to those who do believe in their God and 24% of those who have restricted their prayers to those who believe in their God have also prayed for God to send non-believers to the eternal fires of Hell as He has promised to do).

• 29% believe the victims need prayers more than money.

• 8% actually have not offered prayers, but believed the government would relocate them to “Prayer Camps” if they answered the question honestly.

• 6% asked the poll taker if he/she has found Jesus and tried to convert those who hadn”t.
