Atheists, Jews, and Mormons--at the head of the class
If you're looking for interesting stuff on religion today, look no further than the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, whose research never fails to provoke, delight, disgust, or confuse. Today the NY Times reported a Pew study on the religious literacy of Americans--3400 Americans, to be specific. Out of 32 quiz questions, Atheists, Jews, and Mormons answered on average 20 correctly, with atheists/agnostics leading the list with an average of 20.9.
