Post Poll: Canandian Men Are Heathens

A new survey conducted by pollster Ipsos Reid showed a drop in the number of Canadian believers in God to 71 percent from 84 percent in 2000.

The results, which are yet to be officially released by the pollster, was reported by Canwest News Service, which together with Global National, commissioned the survey that covered 1,000 respondents.

The difference between male and female perception of a God was sharp since the percentage of men who believed dropped to 63 percent from 86 percent, while among women the decrease was just to 79 percent from 82 percent. By age group the largest declines were registered by middle-aged and senior Canadians.

Ipsos vice president John Wright, quoted by Canwest, said, "One wants to say that faith is constant... But I think it is transient for the majority of people."

The survey, made from March 31 to April 2 said 34 percent of Canadians resort to praying more frequently because of the bad state of the economy. An earlier Ipsos Reid study made also for the two Canadian news agencies from March 24 to 26, showed 86 percent of Canadians are still optimistic about the future despite the growing number of bad news that hit the headlines in recent months.

Another Ipsos Reid poll made in December said 67 percent of Canadians believe in angels. The latest survey said 21 percent believe in the existence of heaven and hell, and 20 percent in an afterlife.
