This article focuses on the ways religious factors might influence public opinion on foreign policy issues. It reviews the latest political science perspectives on the shape of public opinion on foreign policy that have emphasized the coherence of competing public orientations toward American policy in the world. One section considers the existing work on religion and public opinion, and discovers—through incidental evidence— that religion has had considerable impact on those orientations.
