According to Gallup Poll, Clergy Members Are Trusted Less Than College Professors

There’s hope for the future. Just a bit.

A new Gallup poll focuses on the trustworthiness of various groups of people. The headline and media coverage will inevitably focus on the low approval ratings given to members of Congress, whose “honesty and ethical standards” rank just a notch above car salespeople.

But I have to admit I’m amazed by something else on the list:

College professors rank higher than members of the clergy?! Educated people are deemed (ever-so-slightly) more reliable than the people who just make things up!? People in the science fields are hovering around the top of the list?!

Progress.

Minimal, in-many-cases-not-even-covering-the-margin-of-error progress.

It feels good.
