Americans Most Bible-literate

This makes my heart happy:
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Americans are among the world's most
'Bible-literate' people and Spaniards, French and Italians are among
the most ignorant about what the "good book" says, according to a
new study released on Monday.

A poll carried out in nine countries -- the United States, Britain,
Germany, France, the Netherlands, Russia, Italy, Spain and Poland --
also showed Americans were most willing to donate money to spread
the message of the Bible.

The poll for the Catholic Biblical Federation interviewed Christians
and non-Christians ahead of a synod of Roman Catholic Bishops on
the Bible due to be held at the Vatican in October.

Most respondents in the poll, which was presented at the Vatican,
were Christian. Except for in the United States, Britain and Russia,
most of the Christians respondents were Catholic.
