The number of atheists, associating the Christian religion with extremism has increased substantially since last year's terrorist attacks in the San Bernardino and Paris. It now stands at 45 per cent of the total number of non-believers, the majority of which, however, do not know what the word "extremism". On this, as reported RIA "Novosti", according to the study of American sociological center Barna Group.
"The understanding that Christianity is something radical, firmly rooted among the unbelievers 45 percent of atheists, agnostics and do not identify themselves with any religion of Americans agree with the statement." Christian -. It is extremist "Only 14 percent strongly disagree. The remaining 41 percent partly disagree slightly inclined toward the negative perception of religion, "- reported in the published study center on the site.
At the same time, according to the findings of scientists, Americans themselves are bad, what really is extremism.Over 80% of respondents believe the emergence of extremism in religious garb in public places, loud prayer outside prescribed tenets restrictions in food, as well as high political activity of believers.
Researchers say these results "disappointing", because such plants can give rise to conflicts in society. The growth of negative attitudes to religion, they say, has become more intense since the attacks in the San Bernardino and Paris.
