Survey finds College Students Don’t Like Mormons More than Atheists

, Spencer Irvine, 4 Comments

Looks like few understand the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and their religious tenets, who are also known as Mormons:

Only two in five students “held favorable attitudes about Mormons” in a survey of 20,000 freshmen across 122 colleges, known as the Interfaith Diversity Experiences & Attitudes Longitudinal Survey, Inside Higher Ed reports.

Conducted by researchers at New York University and North Carolina State in cooperation with Interfaith Youth Core, a group that promotes “religious pluralism,” the survey found that Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus and even atheists are better liked than Mormons
