CBS News ’Sunday Morning’ to examine American religious beliefs

This Sunday, Oct. 4, the CBS News weekly program “Sunday Morning” will examine the state of Americans’ religious views. The show will take a look at a recent Parade Magazine poll showing increased interest on both spirituality and a rejection of religion altogether, both without allegiance to a particular faith or denomination. Correspondent Martha Teichner will speak to a woman who has strayed away from her evangelical childhood and doubts the principles of organized religion, a man who raised Catholic who is a CEO of a Massachusetts yoga center and a psychic medium. “I think religion for many Americans…is very eclectic,” says Randall Balmer, a professor of American Religious Studies at Barnard College in New York City. “I think it really began in the 1960s with the counter-culture… [From] a deep, and for many people, abiding suspicion of institutions – from the government to religions.” “Sunday Morning” is anchored by Charles Osgood. It airs from 9-10:30 a.m. Eastern Time.
