America’s Religious Knowledge Gap

A new survey by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life shows that Evangelical Protestants and Mormons in America know the most about Christianity but that atheists and agnostics know significantly more about Christianity than other Christians and other Non-Christians.

Also, atheists and agnostics do best when it comes to knowledge about world religions.
