Right and Wrong and Religion
These numbers come out of the Pew Religious Landscape Survey via the Corner.
When it comes to questions of right and wrong, which of the following do you look to most for guidance?
|Religious teachings & beliefs||Philosophy & reason||Practical experience & common sense||Scientific Information||Don’t know/Refused|
How interesting. Jehovah’s Witnesses (73%), Mormons (58%), and Evangelical Christians (52%) were most likely to look to religious teachings and beliefs for guidance. Among named groups, Jews (60%), “Mainline” Christians (59%), and Catholics (57%) most looked to practical experience and common sense. “Philosophy and reason” and “scientific information” didn’t score well with anyone.
How would you have answered the question? Does that put you in line with the survey?
