Backgrounder on Palin’s Pentecostal Faith

About 3% of Americans identify as Pentecostals meaning that probably few members of the public have an idea of what VP nominee Sarah Palin’s religious tradition might teach or what she might believe. As a resource, Pew has released a comprehensive backgrounder on the beliefs, practices, issue positions, and partisanship of the sect. Of note, while Pentecostals tend to be on the extreme right when it comes to social issues, they are more liberal than other Evangelicals generally when it comes to the role of government.
