But, a majority of Americans (87%), however, do believe in this concept and they include adultery (81%), racism (74%), use of hard drugs (65%), failing to say anything if they're given too much change by a cashier (63%), having an hard drugs (56%), cheating on their taxes (52%) and homosexual activity (52%) as sin.
