Intergroup Relations, Religiosity and Tolerance of Violence

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examined tolerance of violence against others based on religiosity and group membership. A sample of 211 college-age participants completed The Santa Clara Strength of Religious Faith Questionnaire (SCSORF) and a statistically reliable scale that measured tolerance of violence. Analysis suggests that respondents were more tolerant of violence when victims were members of an ingroup (a group to which they belong) compared to an outgroup. Strength of religious faith had no effect on tolerance of violence, but Catholics demonstrated significantly more tolerance than Christians. Findings suggest tolerance is influenced by presence of group conflict and expectations of others.
