    44% of liberal Dems claim churches bad for U.S.

    Proof that the democrats are the anti-Christian party. Just shows what bigots democrats are. The party that wants others to be tolerant shows they are the intolerant hypocrites.

    A recent nationwide poll found that 44 percent of liberal Democrat believe that churches in the United States have a negative impact of society.

    This view, however, is not only shared by a significant proportion of “liberal” Democrats, but by a large chunk of all Democrats, as Pew Research Center also revealed that more than one in three Democrats in America (36 percent) see churches’ impact on society as negative. This is in stark contrast to the meager 14 percent Republicans who see churches’ influence as negative.

    Comparing negative and positive takes on churches’ influence within different sectors of party lines, here’s how the stats were broken down by Pew’s U.S. Politics and Policy Department:

    "Liberal Democrats are about as likely to say the impact of churches and religious organizations is negative (44 percent) as they are to say it is positive (40 percent),” Pew divulged. “By two-to-one (58 percent to 29 percent), more conservative and moderate Democrats say churches have a positive than negative effect on the country. Majorities of both conservative Republicans and Republican leaners (75 percent) and moderate and liberal Republicans (68 percent) say churches and religious organizations have a positive impact."

    Partisan view of media, colleges, other institutions vary widely

    After surveying 2,504 American adults from coast to coast between June 8 and 18, Pew researchers also discovered that the way Republicans and Democrats view the media – as well as academic, labor and financial institutions – in the U.S. differ greatly.

    As anticipated, Democrats and other liberals have a much more favorable view of the Leftist mainstream news media than Republicans.

    “About as many Democrats and Democratic-leaning Independents think the news media has a positive (44 percent) as negative (46 percent) impact on the way things are going in the country,” Pew reported. “The share of Democrats holding a positive view of the news media’s impact has increased 11 percentage points since last August (33 percent). Republicans, by about eight-to-one (85 percent to 10 percent), say the news media has a negative effect. These views have changed little in the past few years.”

    From labor unions, to banks, to religious institutions, Republicans and Democrats disagree about their influence on American society.

    “Democrats continue to be more likely than Republicans to view labor unions positively (59 percent vs. 33 percent), while larger shares of Republicans have positive views of churches and religious institutions (73 percent of Republicans vs. 50 percent of Democrats) and banks and financial institutions (46 percent vs. 33 percent),” the statistics indicated.

    Despite stark differences between liberals and conservatives, Americans’ overall view of institutions in the U.S. has not changed much over the years.

    “Majorities of Americans say churches and religious organizations (59 percent) and colleges and universities (55 percent) have a positive effect,” Pew explained. “Nearly half (47 percent) say labor unions have a positive impact; 32 percent see their impact negatively. Views of the impact of banks and other financial institutions are more negative (46 percent) than positive (39 percent). And by roughly two-to-one (63 percent to 28 percent), more Americans say that the national news media has a negative than positive effect on the way things are going in the country.”

    With extreme Leftist campus politics pervading on virtually every American college campus in recent years, Republican’s attitudes towards colleges and universities – and the effect they have on society – have dramatically plunged of late.

    What kind of fake news site is this? Their internal links go to all kinds of interesting sites, it's just they have nothing to do with the title of this thread.

    They do confirm that a majority of Republicans think universities have a negative effect on the country. Enjoy.

    And remember most of them are Christians. They believe in silly things like science and education.

    Because it is intolerant of churches to say that.

    I have no love for organized religion either. Some of the worst human beings I have ever encountered have been at church. But I try to remain objective and not let my own personal experiences lead me to say that all churches are bad.

    I guess it depends on how you define bigoted.

    To say that all churches are bad seems to be a strong and unfair dislike of churches to me. So I would say it would be fair to criticize that statement as bigoted.
