The survey by Pew Research Center found that 56% of Catholics believe there are 3 kinds of Catholics, and 31% of them believe there is only one kind.
A third of the Catholics surveyed said they have no opinion about these 3 kinds.
There is some overlap among the 3 categories: 53% of the Catholic population say there is no one kind of person in the church, and 27% say there are at least 3.
Of those who say there’s no one type of person, nearly half (47%) say there may be more than one kind, while another 39% say they don’t know.
Among Catholics who say they are not aware of the three types of Catholics they worship, 33% say the church teaches that there is one person of each type in the faith.
Among those who are aware of this, 33 percent say the same.
The percentage of Catholics who said they don’st know of the 3 types of people varies by denomination.
A full 64% of Protestants, 70% of Catholic, and 69% of Evangelical Protestants say there has been no discernment of the two types.
The same number of Catholics (62%) say they have not heard about the 3 kinds, while a quarter (24%) said they haven’t heard about them.
The most popular answer to the question about the three kinds is that there may only be one kind: 33% of those who answered this are unsure.
More than half (55%) of the people who answered “no” to the “don’t know” question said that this is the case.
The other major type of question in the survey was about the role of the church in the world.
The majority of Catholics said that the church is important in the life of the world, and that it should play a greater role in helping the poor.
Among Catholics who answered yes to this question, 63% said that helping the world is a priority for the church.
This is more than the percentage of Protestants who answered that way, which was 31%.
More than half of the Christians who answered the “no to help the world” question (54%) also said that they believe the church can and should help people in need.
In a separate survey conducted by Pew in 2017, a similar percentage of Americans said they think that the Catholic faith is more important than the United States in the lives of the global population.
A majority (55% of Americans) of Americans think that it is, compared with 28% of U.S. Catholics who responded the same way.
About half of Americans (49%) said the church should be involved in political campaigns, and the other half (49% of all Americans) said that it shouldn’t.
More than four in 10 Americans (42%) said that there should be no religious test for entrance into the U.K. Parliament.
This was a significant finding, given that the poll was conducted after the 2015 suicide bombing of Parliament in Westminster, which left four people dead.
Among U.H.C. Catholics, the poll found that nearly two-thirds (65%) said there is a conflict between Catholic and Protestant beliefs, and almost half (48%) said it is a matter of personal faith.
The poll was based on 1,000 adults, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
