Church attendance impact on Israel support

Reader comment on item: How Church Attendance Affects American Attitudes toward Israel

Submitted by Jim Tittsworth (United States), Aug 6, 2014 at 22:41

On the question about how Protestants from so-called "main line" churches and evangelical worshippers break down for or against Israel, I found a pretty good explanation of it in David Frum's book, The Right Man. I believe you will find the most supportive Christians are from the evangelical churches and least from liberal "main line" faiths.

I would be interested to know what you consider "main line" faith. I believe you would find Baptists, which to me is a main line faith, to be extremely supportive of Israel while the more liberal main line churches, such as the Presbyterians would be less so. For reference, I grew up attending an evangelical country church on the Cumberland Plateau..
