Had the “religious nones” been included in the atheist/agnostic category it would’ve pulled the atheist/agnostic numbers down

Jews, Mormons and Atheists were about on par with each other.
also:

“Jews, Mormons and atheists/agnostics were oversampled to allow analysis of these relatively small groups.”

statistically allowable, but still. Anyway, the point about the low scoring Hispanic Catholic and Black Protestant wasn’t a surprise.

Evangelicals did surprisingly well however. I expected them to get a lower score than they did.

Interestingly, in that study, the “religious nones” were separated out from the Atheist/Agnostic whereas in this one: http://www.pewresearch.org/…/11/05/7-facts-about-atheists/ it was a strange mixture of including and not including them.

Had the “religious nones” been included in the atheist/agnostic category it would’ve pulled the atheist/agnostic numbers down and the Jews would’ve been on top. Makes for less interesting news tongue emoticon

I’m always wary of two things: a) News accounts of surveys and b) surveys. Thank you for posting the news story James Chambers – as I suspect the Meme form of this survey will likely have extreme errors, as memes generally do smile emoticon
