Americans’ Trust in Honesty, Ethics of Clergy Hits All-Time Low in Gallup Ranking of Professions

 

The Gallup poll, conducted between Dec. 3-12 of 1,025 U.S. adults, found that only 37 percent of respondents had a “very high” or “high” opinion of the honesty and ethical standards of clergy. Forty-three percent of people gave them an average rating, while 15 percent said they had a “low” or “very low” opinion.  Gallup noted that the 37 percent “very high” or “high” score for clergy is the lowest since it began asking the question in 1977.  “The public’s views of the honesty and ethics of the clergy continue to decline after the Catholic Church was rocked again this year by more abuse scandals,” Gallup noted in its observations.  Read more:  https://www.christianpost.com/news/americans-trust-in-honesty-ethics-of-clergy-hits-all-time-low-in-gallup-ranking-of-professions.html
