Description

Adventists have a long history of strife with the Catholic Church, but the religion of Islam also has a lot of salience to Christians that live in the states now. This study examines whether Seventh-day Adventists see Catholics or Muslims as a bigger threat. We measure perceived threat with a self-report scale and a reaction time measure. Data collection is in process. T-test analysis is expected to show that Adventists view Catholics as a higher threat. This study could have an impact on our understanding of integration and interactions between different religious groups.
