Bill Frist on Principles & Values
Republican Senate Majority Leader (TN, retiring 2006)
In 2002, VOLPAC identified 14 incumbents who needed assistance, and supported them to the fullest; ALL 14 won. VOLPAC also identified and gave full support to 12 challengers; 8 are now serving in the U.S. Senate. And in 2004, 18 of the 22 races VOLPAC supported were victorious. More recently, in 2005, VOLPAC received contributions from nearly 50,000 individuals - representing every state in the country. In total, we raised a record high $3.4 million, with an average donation of just $70.00.
Those contributions have enabled us to step up and offer early support to some of our outstanding candidates running for the US Senate this year: candidates like Michael Steele in Maryland, Mark Kennedy in Minnesota, Tom Kean Jr. in New Jersey & Mike McGavick in Washington.
The Adherents.com website is an independent project and is not supported by or affiliated with any organization (academic, religious, or otherwise).
Such factors as religious service attendance, belief, practice, familiarity with doctrine, belief in certain creeds, etc., may be important to sociologists, religious leaders, and others. But these are measures of religiosity and are usually not used academically to define a person’s membership in a particular religion. It is important to recognize there are various levels of adherence, or membership within religious traditions or religious bodies. There’s no single definition, and sources of adherent statistics do not always make it clear what definition they are using.
