Ideological agreement and disagreement among religious groups

Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant college students were asked to rate the twenty most discriminating items of form J of the C-R Opinionnaire for the subjects' own attitudes and for his estimates of attitudes of the three religious groups. Catholics and Protestants differed significantly only on issues related to religious belief. As compared to Lentz's 1935 subjects, the present group was less conservative but had more respect for patriotic ideals, perhaps because of the greater threat from war. Students of different religious groups appear united in their belief in democratic institutions, which might aid the unity among such groups.
