Well, that's not too surprising, I suppose.

Has there been any European studies like this? I imagine the Bible would be up there as well, maybe not number one but still going strong...not everyone is enlightened and secular in Europe, I gather. :)

I wish there were European studies that I could compare. I'll have to investigate.
