Three in ten Norwegians believe that they should be allowed to burn religious symbols, new research shows.
According to a survey of Norwegian views on freedom of expression, three in ten Norwegians believe that they should be allowed to burn religious symbols, but 49% disagree. ..
Divided by political party affiliation, the majority of them vote in full or in part (44.9%) for the Progressive Party (FRP), the newspaper Aftenposten writes.
The Institute for Social Research (samfunnsforskning Institute) conducted the survey on behalf of Frit Ordo. The book “Freedom of Speech” explains the public’s attitude towards freedom of speech.
Most Labor Party (AP) voters (60.8%) believe that burning religious symbols should not be allowed.
Also, 43% of Norwegians fully or partially agree that supporting the right to express themselves as a racist is as bad as being a racist. It is also clear that there is.
People who emphasize the harmful potential of expression often vote for the party on the left. Studies show that they are more often women.
The large group on the left should have plenty of room for expression and believes this is the case in Norway today. Many of them voted for the Red Party and the Socialist Left Party (SV).
Some groups emphasize freedom of speech, but think that the space for expression is too narrow. They are also more critical of traditional news media and are more likely to vote for FRP. Men between the ages of 30 and 59 are overrated in the group.
