Report: Popular confidence in Church low in Italy, Poland

November 15, 2007

From Catholic World News:

Rome, Nov. 14, 2007 (CWNews.com) – The European Union commands slightly more confidence among Italians than the Catholic Church, according to a survey in the daily Corriere della Sera.

The Corriere survey found that 66% of respondents were willing to trust the European Union, while 61% trusted the Church. Only 51% trusted the media, 46% the banks, and a mere 21% trusted the country’s political parties.

In Poland, a similar poll conducted by the CBOS firm found that 60% trusted the Catholic Church– a number nearly matching the Italian figure. However, in Poland a remarkable 83% expressed trust in television coverage, 76% in radio, 74% in the police, and 70% in the army– all winning higher confidence ratings than the Church.
