A new poll suggests that Americans value religion, but don't consider it essential to good citizenship.
The survey was conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. Two-thirds of those surveyed said they consider the United States a Christian nation, and 58 percent agreed that the strength of American society is based on the religious faith of its people.
But 84 percent said they believe that a person can still be a good American without religious faith.
