. . .and I found a new university research report headed, “Conservative Protestants’ Religious Beliefs Contribute to Their Low Wealth, Duke Study Shows”.
Don’t ask me what I think it means yet, I haven’t even read the study, just the official news release. The first question that popped into my head wasn’t one I’m eager to explore: does this sociology correlate to the data Dana just cited, and provide evidence that poor and poorly educated moms with many children not only are significantly more prone to child abuse, but also more prone to homeschooling — and if so, can credible correlation of religion with homeschooling and religious homeschooling with child abuse be much further ahead than the next demographic corner? [shudder]
On the upside, it sure opens up “the” meaning of family values . . .
