Congregation size shapes view of racial inequality, Baylor study shows

By | August 15, 2013

Congregation size has an impact on how people view the reasons for racial inequality in America, according to a new study by researchers at Baylor University and the University of Southern California.

Those who attend very large congregations do not tend to attribute social divisions between blacks and whites to discrimination or lack of quality education, but to something other than structural failings in society, said Ryon J. Cobb, a postdoctoral research associate at USC’s Roybal Institute on Aging.

“Size of the congregation matters above and beyond denominational affiliations, religious traditions and political beliefs,” he said. “It’s not just that you attend or that you pray, but where you go.” (North Dallas Gazette)
