Mark Steyn on Polygamy

Interesting Mark Steyn piece at the Telegraph (UK) on polygamy.
I found this quote particularly interesting, in view of how "religious" the U.S. is considered by most Europeans....

"The YouGov poll on Britons' lack of religious faith, reported in yesterday's Telegraph, confirms that this country is well advanced in its post-Christian condition. Whereas 44 per cent of Britons believe in God and 44 per cent don't, in recent American polls the number who believe is 92–97 per cent and the number who don't is around three per cent. Three quarters of Americans believe in Hell, which is more than the bishops' bench in the House of Lords can say. Most Britons, for good or ill, are content in their post-Christian state. The danger is in assuming it's permanent, rather than an intermediate phase."
