    Public’s Trust of Church Leaders:  45% (at least in Canada)

    Public’s Trust of Church Leaders:  45% (at least in Canada)

    It's a new poll out from Ipsos Reid in Canada.  At least in Canada... 45% of people say they trust church leaders.  (That figure is unchanged from the survey taken in 2003).  That ranks above chiropractors, mechanics, journalists, and lawyers; but trails soldiers, doctors, and airline pilots.

    The biggest losers over the last ten years:  Pharmacists and Doctors (down 25 and 22% respectively).  The winners:  Local politicians and National politicians (both up 16%)

    I'm not sure if this type of poll is done in the US; but I think that politicians stock would not be on the rise.

    And I'm not sure that church leaders would get a 46% approval rating either?

    Lowest on the list:  Car Sales People.

    Go figure.

    QUESTION:  Who do you think our society in the US respects most these days? Least?

      According to the exchange rate than we pastors must be at about 34% in the US.  (Sorry, someone had to go there.)
