Filed under: Ireland — John Maass @ 8:09 am

There’s evidence in Ireland to suggest this.  According to a RTE story of 4/9/07, “One third of 15- to 24-year-olds cannot say where Jesus was born or what the Christian Church celebrates at Easter…The 15- to 24-year-olds were also more than twice as ignorant as the pensioners when it came to naming the Holy Trinity, with 53% of the younger group failing to answer correctly.  But the younger group outscored the older one by 48% to 44%when it came to naming the first book of the bible.”

The rest of the story is here.
