(Worthy News) – A first-of-its-kind survey reveals significant shifts in Iranians' attitudes toward religious beliefs and their authoritarian government.
For 14 days in June, two Dutch professors interviewed more than 50,000 Iranians online for an unprecedented survey covering topics from faith to politics to religious life.
The authors say they discovered a huge shift that should fundamentally change how we look at Iran today.
One major standout from professors Pooyan Tamimi Arab and Ammar Maleki is that despite Iran's census claims that 99.5 percent of the population is Shiite Islam, only 32 percent of their respondents identified as such. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
