According to a new Ellison Research poll of more than 1,000 people, almost one-third of men say they never attend church—not even on holidays. Among both men and women who do go to church, 62 percent went with both parents when they were children. If only one parent went with them (usually Mom), that number declines to 50 percent. And among those whose parents never took them to church, only one-third now attend. “Dads need to model the behavior,” says Ellison President Ron Sellers. Dad’s you matter. (ht: usatoday.com
