When it comes to the intersection of religion and press freedom in the U.S., most Americans said French magazine Charlie Hebdo had the right to publish the cartoons that lead to an attack on its Parisian office.
According to a study from the Pew Research Center, 60 percent of respondents said the magazine was in the right, while only 28 percent said the cartoons should not have been published.
Armed men attacked the magazine's offices in early January after it published satirical cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammed.
