Angels don’t just sing at Christmastime. For most Americans, they’re a year-round presence. A new Associated Press-GfK poll shows that 77 percent of adults believe these ethereal beings are real.
Belief is primarily tied to religion, with 88 percent of Christians, 95 percent of evangelical Christians and 94 percent of those who attend weekly religious services of any sort saying they believe in angels.
But belief in angels is fairly widespread even among the less religious. A majority of non-Christians think angels exist, as do more than 4 in 10 of those who never attend religious services.

Angels are a nice idea – the guardian, the messenger, the cloud people, etc. But just because its a nice thing to believe doesn’t mean it’s TRUE. We can thank pop culture for societies ideas about angels. They sure push it, especially this time of year.
