Religious Belief in Australia (Part 1)
David Marr discusses the findings of two surveys which examine religious belief in Australia.
Greg Clarke interviewed author and Fairfax journalist David Marr on the findings of two surveys looking at religious belief in Australia. The first was a Nielson Poll published by the Herald in late 2009. The second survey commissioned by CPX and conducted by McCrindle Research. The surveys revealed that despite perceptions of Australia being the ‘most godless nation under heaven’, faith plays a significant role in Australian culture. Yet with 92% of Australians not attending church, this faith isn’t necessarily attached to worship or the church.
