Ipsos global poll: Two in three Australians think religion does more harm than good in the world

http://www.smh.com.au/national/ipsos-global-poll-two-in-three-australians-think-...


A bigger share of Australians than respondents in most other countries think religion does more harm than good in the world, new polling has revealed.

The survey of more than 17,000 people across 23 countries by polling firm Ipsos found opinion is evenly divided about the influence that religion has in society.

It showed 49 per cent of respondents across all countries agreed with the statement "religion does more harm in the world than good".

But the proportion of Australians agreeing with that statement was well above the international average at 63 per cent.

"Australia is one of the more negative countries regarding the perceived harm that religion does," David Elliott from the Ipsos Social Research Institute said.

From the article.

Quote:
Even so, Australia had an above-average share who felt "completely comfortable" being around people with different religious beliefs to their own (84 per cent).

"While many of us do not have a positive view of religion, we are not translating this negativity to fear or dislike of individuals who have different beliefs to our own," Mr Elliot said.

"In this regard, we are among the more tolerant nations globally. This tolerance may reflect our multi-cultural society or maybe driven by beliefs that negative impacts of religion are more an issue globally than locally."



Seem white religionists are the only ones with chips on their shoulders.

Why didn't they ask these questions in Saud or Pakistan, or any of the other countries central to Islam where the worst effects of religion are felt?

Tentative answer: Because they would have their tongues cut out for asking it.

Philosophically opposed to ritual, superstition,religion, and secret ju-ju. Not big on flying saucers either.

You don't agree that religion does more harm than good in the world?

Read the article.

No specific religions were mentioned.

The questions were:

"To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following statements about religion?"

"Religion does more harm in the world than good?"

"I am completely comfortable being around people who have different religious beliefs than me."

"My religion defines me as a person"
