Are kids in Christian classes coming out less Christian?
A two-year study of graduates from Catholic, Protestant and home schools found the choice of private education, when compared to public education, had significant effects on the students' academics, civics and faith â€“ but not necessarily the effects one might expect.
For example, the study found, the adjusted net effect on students of private, Catholic schooling versus public schooling was to produce graduates even less likely to believe in moral absolutes, to respect the authority of the Catholic Church, to believe in the infallibily of Scripture or to condemn premarital sex.
"In contrast to the popular stereotypes portraying Christian schools as promoting a socially fragmented, anti-intellectual, politically radical and militantly right-winged lifestyle," claims the survey from Cardus, a think tank focusing on North American society, "this comprehensive study reveals a very different picture...

"Religious home education produced the greatest effect on increasing graduates' belief that morality should be based on an absolute, unchanging standard, while Catholic schooling actually decreased this belief"
The article demonstrates how the Roman Catholic outfit is more worldly, - Than Protestants.
"No absolute moral standard" in the Roman Catholic illustrates how they treat the Word of God. Tradition is more important to them than the Word of God! Hence as we have seen they reject Sola Scriptura and go for (a)"RC church as god" and (b)"tradition" is more authorative than Scripture. Thus we see the Roman Catholics are more worldly and perceived, (by the Christian), as UNBiblical! UNChristian! and infidel.
Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye."
