  • Religious Adherents popularity

    Pew has a poll on how much the American adherents of different religious beliefs like and dislike each other:

    Summary:
    Evangelicals like other Christians, like Mormons a little less, don't like any other group much, and detest atheists and to a lesser extent muslims
    Some obvious deviation is Mainliners, who don't particularly dislike atheists (probably because they're atheists themselves) and black evangelicals who don't particularly dislike muslims.
    Catholics are similar to Evangelicals, though they dislike atheists and muslims a bit less.
    Jews like themselves a lot (all religious groups give themselves higher ratings but Jews top the self regard list by quite a bit), like catholics, easterners and atheists, and absolutely loathe evangelicals and muslims. This probably stands out the most since evangelicals hold jews in fairly high regard and are the main reason why Israel gets so much American support.
    Atheists loathe evangelicals, dislike mormons, and are middle of the road on everyone else.
    Agnostics still can't make their mind up about anything.

      I'm not even on the graph.

      Edit: oh, it was just a notgay comment of appreciation. Carry on then.

          I'm a white nondenominational (evangelical?) male. I dislike people on a case-by-case basis.

            Well, I mean, I don't really care about Muslims who invade other territories and slaughter the people living there.

              "I don't like anybody very much."
              Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

                I'm surprised every group is so low with itself. I'd at least think everybody would be in the 90s.

                    Well, Christians be dumb. But only because humans are dumb.

                      Also, mainline Christians like Jews more than evangelical or Protestant Christians. As somebody who tends to run in social circles somewhere between the two camps (mainline/evangelical), I can't say I'm surprised.

                        It's 1 point, not sure it means anything.
