And I quote:

Quote
The University of Stellenbosch's unit for religious and developmental studies conducted the research among young Anglicans between the ages of 10 and 24, in 12 Anglican dioceses across the country.


and then.....

Quote
Of the respondents, 97.1% described themselves as Christians, while more than 98% of them believe it is important to be healthy.


Wow, only 97.1% of Anglican youth describe themselves as Christians? There are less people in the Anglican church who are christians than ones who believe health is important?!

The mind boggles.

You have to wonder if these people were competent enough to fill in a survey in the first place. I have to contend that at least a part of the remaining 2.9% didn't know what they were answering. At worst, none of those understood the question thoroughly. And at that point, how reliable can the study be in the first place?

Maybe they were trick questions? Tongue
