  • A new study by the Pew Research Center found that few Americans blame God for suffering in the world.
  • Instead, Americans are more likely to blame suffering on random chance, the actions of others, or society at large.
  • The survey included questions about both religious or spiritual belief, and the meaning of suffering.
  • Respondents who expressed a belief in God, or a higher power, were subsequently asked if they blame God when bad things happen in the world.
