Maybe I'm reading too much of my own background into surveys like this, but I tend to feel like they completely miss the point of how people differ on religious issues. I vaguely remember a probably made-up story about a nice Christian lady who was trying to get to know a Muslim and her way of coming to understand his views was to ask, "So what do you believe about Jesus?" That's an obvious exaggeration, but at about this point in the survey, I was also shaking my head and asking "Why are we even talking about this?" Disagreements are shaped much more by differences in priorities than differences in beliefs, and I am not sure whether fundangelicals have the tools to grasp that.
