This chapter presents a quantitative analysis of the effects of religion-state arrangements on democracy and national rates of religiosity using cross-national data on religion and state arrangements from Grim and Finke (2006) and Fox (2008). It tests three major hypotheses of the book: 1) that religiously friendly democracy is possible; 2) that religiously friendly democratization can create support for democracy on the part of religious individuals; and 3) that religiously friendly democracies can positively affect national rates of religiosity.
