How do young adults view the church? Not too favorably.
Last year, the Public Religion Research Institute and Georgetown’s Berkley Center published a fascinating report about young adults and faith.
On the left side of the chart, we see descriptions of Christianity (“judgmental,” “anti-gay,” “has good principles,” etc.). The dots indicate the percentage of Christian young adults (orange) and Unaffiliated young adults (blue) who believe that descriptor to be true.
I’m amazed at how apart the dots are for most descriptors. What stands out to you?
Our office also partnered with a polling firm to gather some rich data about religious activity and preferences. More to come on that in a few days.
