[stats] Norway: 68 percent skeptical to religious organisations

Some good news here. There's been conducted a national survey on integration of immigrants in Norway(by the Dept. of Integration), and part of it dealt with Norwegians' attitudes Islam. That question is a complex political question and I'll leave that alone here, but more immediately interesting for us was the control question on religious organisations in general which they asked.

Respondents are asked to rate how this statement fits to their own attitude:

"I am generally skeptical to religious organisations and communities/congregations"

Fits completely 33%
Fits pretty good: 35%
Fits pretty bad: 21%
Does not fit at all: 8%
No reply: 2%
