I’ve never seen this before…
A survey conducted by the Montreal-based Association for Canadian Studies has revealed two amazing things:
42 per cent of those polled agreed with the statement “religion is an important part of my life”…
Fewer than half the people surveyed said religion was important to them!
But wait… it gets better:
67 per cent of those surveyed said they trusted “people who are religious” in general, and even more respondents — 73 per cent — expressed trust in “people who are not religious.”
The study also found that only 56% of people ages 18-24 believed in god… so I assume 44% do not?! Incredible.
