A Pew Poll released its recent results on a survey of how much Americans know about religion. To quote, "...atheists, agnostics, Jews and Mormons outperformed Protestants and Roman Catholics in answering questions about major religions, while many respondents could not correctly give the most basic tenets of their own faiths."
Later on in the article, it states that Mormons scored highest in knowledge about Christianity. I'm not shocked about this. What I was shocked over was that people didn't know about their own faiths. I suppose I'm a little taken back because I'm used to people who are rather well versed about who they worship and how. I must run with a spiritual crew, even if we worship at different altars.
I went to the site and took the quiz. There were some tricky questions. For instance, I did NOT know (between two names of the three listed) who was associated with "The Great Awakening". I knew it wasn't Billy Graham, but I chose incorrectly. The results page of the quiz breaks it down by religion/education/gender/overall population/worship attendance/etc. It's actually quite interesting. I suggest you go to the link below, read the article, then take the quiz. It's only 15 questions. Or you can just go directly to the quiz:
Either way, I'm relatively certain you'll be intrigued by what you learn. And....I'M SO PLEASED MY FAMILY WAS REPRESENTED TWICE....Jews and Mormons....I'll get to heaven if I have to die trying....wait.....
