Nearly 40% of Americans “Do Not” Thank God on Thanksgiving: And you wonder why we have so much turmoil… 

In research released last week, LifeWay surveyed 1,000 Americans to ask what they were thankful for and to whom they gave thanks at Thanksgiving.LifeWay found that 63 percent of respondents said they gave thanks to God on the November holiday, which placed God at No. 1 on a list that included giving thanks to “family” (57 percent), “friends” (31 percent), “myself” (8 percent) and not giving thanks at all (7 percent).Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research, told The Christian Post that the 63 percent total, while No. 1 on the list, was still “a little lower than one might expect considering American religious preferences.””On one hand, only 80 percent of those with a Christian religious preference of some kind typically thank God at Thanksgiving,” McConnell said.”On the other hand, 25 percent of those with no religious preference give thanks to God. It is easy to jump to the conclusion that those with no religious preference are antireligious. That is not the case for most of the Nones.”McConnell also told CP that when comparing the different age demographics there were “a few differences by age in who people thank.”
