Professors Hold ‘Unfavorable’ View of Evangelicals — 05/08/2007

A majority of American university faculty members view evangelical Christians unfavorably and would like to see the influence of “Christian fundamentalists” on American politics lessened, according to a study released Monday by the Institute for Jewish and Community Research (IJCR).The survey, which polled more than 1,200 university faculty members, found that 53 percent of them have “cool” or “unfavorable” feelings toward evangelicals, a group that may account for one-third of the American population. The study also found that one-third of faculty members had a negative view of Mormons.
