Over a third (37%) say it's okay to sometimes take pictures during prayer
Technology is everywhere, and for the religious, phones sometimes end up in the pews during a religious service or prayer. Some forward-facing churches develop apps to keep up with the needs of their ministries and attendees – but not all embrace the technology, as when Pope Francis chided Catholics for taking photos of him during liturgy. A poll conducted by YouGov found that three in ten Americans (30%) believe it’s “never okay” to take photos during a religious service.
YouGov Omnibus reveals that one in ten Americans (10%) believe that it’s “always fine” to take photos at a place of worship and many (37%) think it’s “okay” depending on the situation.
