35 years ago today - Spring 1984.

A survey of Dialogue subscribers shows that 94 percent are LDS, 88 percent attend church "every" or "most" Sundays (although no attendance figures are publicly available, the churchwide average is generally considered to be no more than 50 percent), two-thirds accept the Book of Mormon as "an actual historical record of ancient inhabitants," and less than half feel they should "go along with" a policy with which they disagree--10 percent accepting it "on faith" and another 37 percent expressing disagreement and then complying.
