Losing our religion..?

A NEW survey suggests people in Northern Ireland are less religious than those in the Republic. David Quinn of the Iona Institute said it was “likely that many people will find the Northern Ireland results surprising in that the general impression is that the north is more religious than the south”. Some key findings included: Only 42% know that there are four Gospels and just over half (54%) could name the Holy Trinity. Protestant churches might be concerned that only 2% more Prods could name Martin Luther as the religious figure who started the Protestant Reformation (Catholics 30%, Protestants 32%). You can see the whole survey here.
