Religious Identity Changing In Younger Hispanics

 NEW YORK - The findings of the Univision-AP Poll relating to Hispanics and Religion show that younger Latinos, as well as English-dominant Hispanics, are much less likely to identify as Catholic than older, Spanish-dominant Hispanics. According to the poll:

 

  • Sixty-two percent of Hispanics identify as Catholic. Among them, regardless of language preference, only 55 percent of young adults 18-29 identify as Catholic, compared to 80 percent of those 65 and older.

 

On the controversial same-sex marriage issue, the poll found:

 

  • Thirty-one percent of Hispanics believe same-sex marriage should be allowed; 35 percent think it should not be allowed; and 28 percent believe it should not be allowed, but think same-sex individuals should be allowed to legally form a civil union.

 

On the issue of abortion, the poll found:

 

·         Thirty-nine percent of Hispanics say abortion should be mostly legal. Among English-dominant Hispanics, 49 percent believe it should be legal in most cases. Among Spanish-dominants, only 31 percent say it should be mostly legal.
