Concerns about religious freedom have dominated headlines in recent years. Most Americans say protecting religious liberty is essential.
But not all faiths get the same support, according to a study from the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
Previously, Facts & Trends has reported on Lifeway Research’s most study on religious liberty.
Other related Lifeway Research stories have discussed the extent of religious liberty to various groups, as well as Americans being wary of what they perceive as Islamic threats to those freedoms.
Much of the confusion about religious liberty in America could stem from the fact that one-in-five Americans thinks the First Amendment goes too far, but most can’t name the freedoms it protects.
When Facts & Trends asked religious leaders to name trends to watch in 2016, religious liberty discussions were mentioned.
