STUDY: Protestants More Likely To Struggle With Overeating, Catholics With Drug Abuse

Protestants are more likely to struggle with overeating, while Catholics struggle more with drug abuse and gossip, according to a new study on temptation from the Barna Group.

Barna, a Christian-focused research outfit, conducted 1,021 online interviews conducted among a representative sample of adults over the age of 18.

They also found half of all respondents could not explain why they gave into temptation. Only one per cent blamed “human or sinful nature.”
