On October 15, 2004 American Bible Association/PR Newswire reported that, "The American Bible Society (ABS) released a study finding that the majority (67%) of American teenagers think that God and/or faith in God belongs in the White House. Only 8% said it does not while 25 said 'sometimes or depends on the situation.' Midwest and Southern respondents were higher in agreement on this question than were those from the Northeast and West... The results were part of a survey conducted by the ABS to provide a snapshot of youth perceptions of prayer as it relates to the 2004 presidential candidates and to its appropriateness in the White House."
