What's missing? Jewish folks on the sexual guilt study. I can't find, at least in the news account of the study, any mention of them.
So how does our correlation hold up? Not so good if we collapse a few categories and take a few statistical liberties with the data. For example, Mormons are high on the guilt scale but also awfully high on the religious knowledge scale, thus screwing up any potential correlation. Catholics kinda hold up the correlation, falling in the middle on both scales. All in all, not much of a correlation between what you know about religion and the role religion plays in your sexual guilt.
Data once again getting in the way of some good theories. Or at least silly fun.
