According to a 2007 survey it does. I bet this is bound to stir up some discussion:
Frequent Bible reading has some predictable effects on the reader. It increases opposition to abortion as well as homosexual marriage and unions. It boosts a belief that science helps reveal God’s glory. It diminishes hopes that science will eventually solve humanity’s problems. But unlike some other religious practices, reading the Bible more often has some liberalizing effects—or at least makes the reader more prone to agree with liberals on certain issues. This is true even when accounting for factors such as political beliefs, education level, income level, gender, race, and religious measures (like which religious tradition one affiliates with, and one’s views of biblical literalism).
What do you think? Does reading the Bible frequently make one more liberal? I’m inclined to agree, based off of my experience and I know of a few others who have had a similar journey to mine. Anyways, read the article and feel free to share your thoughts.
