Our colleague Dr. Amanda Friesen’s fascinating work on the shared genetic connection between political attitudes and religiosity was cited in a recent article in the New York Times.

The research referred to in the Times is a piece Dr. Friesen co-authored with Aleksander Ksiazkiewicz and was published in the journal Political Behavior.

They also recently published a follow-up piece titled “The Higher Power of Religiosity Over Personality on Political Ideology” in the same journal.

For those without access to the academic journals linked above, they also have an excellent blog post on their recent work published last fall, which can be found at the Religion in Public blog.
