Over at Religion News Service, Jana Riess interviews Daniel Cox, research director at PRRI (Public Religion Research Institute), on a new study on the religious beliefs of Millennials and Generation Z. The study is titled “Diversity, Division, Discrimination: The State of Young America.”
Here is what I learned from Jana’s interview:
- Young people believe that Americans are more divided over politics than race or religion
- Young people are not much different than older Americans on abortion, but on all other issues of human sexuality, including marriage, they are more liberal than older Americans.
- Young people are much more tolerant of non-traditional families
- Barack Obama is viewed favorably by young people, but less so among white young men
- Only 25% of young people “have a favorable impression of Trump.”
- Young people believe that Muslims in America are facing discrimination
