Christmas, Americans and the Virgin Birth:
"A 2008 Barna Poll found that 75 percent of Americans believe the Virgin Birth, including 15 percent of atheists."
Makes ya wonder about the value of polling.
To say nothing of anything like human consistency.

*BTW, the Virgin Birth of Christ and the Immaculate Conception of Mary are two quite distinct items: the immaculate conception refers to the conception by Mary's parents, Joachim and Anna, of their daughter. She was conceived in the normal way, but bore no Original Sin. Her later conception and birth-giving of Jesus was virginal; no male involved. (Why let all that theological education go to waste?)
