Poll: Americans stretch the truth on attending church
On the phone, 73 percent of "nones" say they seldom or never attend, but 91 percent say so when interviewed online.
In the overall study, 19 percent of adults answering online said religion was not important to them; only 13 percent said so on the phone.
However, among the "nones," the gap on the importance of religion was markedly wider — 49 percent on the phone, compared with 73 percent online.
