CWN Editor's Note: According to the survey, 34% of Americans, and 50% of Catholics, know that the Catholic Church teaches “that during the Mass, the bread and wine used for Communion actually become the Body and Blood of Christ.” Only 50% of Americans, and 55% of Catholics, know that Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount. Overall, “evangelical Protestant get the most questions right about Christianity; Jews are most well-versed in world religions.”
