State of the First Amendment Survey, 1997 - Analysis

FRREL1

I'm going to read you some ways people might exercise their First Amendment right of freedom of religion. For each, tell me if you agree or disagree that someone should be free to do it. People should be allowed to display religious symbols on government property. Do you agree or disagree that people should be free to do this? PROBE: do you strongly or mildly (agree/disagree)?
