Mormons One of Highest Devout Religions

Deseret News reported surveys that revealed Mormons to be the near-top religion for devout members.

The trend is surprisingly moreso with younger members. Overall, greater than 80% of active Mormons in almost all categories are firm with church attendence, scripture reading, prayer, certainty of God, putting all beliefs on faith, and say that the religion is the large majority of their lives.

At the bottom of the article, it notes that the approval of homosexuality in the LDS church has risen from 25% in 2007 to 36%, but only 25% approve of same-sex marriage, while 69% oppose it. Still, the numbers are higher than one might expect.
