The article discusses the findings of a poll about the political thinking of the men who are teaching theology in the U.S. The poll shows that the Pentecostals and the Baptists take, on the whole, the more sophisticated positions on social matters. This datum is interesting to those anthropologists fascinated by correlations. The poll also reveals the extent to which theologians, like so many others, are victim to contemporary thought. The socially elite class people are the most fundamentalist in Eastern Seaboard liberalism.
