Is there a link?


Only 12% of Jehovah's Witnesses are college graduates. Typically JW are not very welcoming to anyone outside their belief system and many (not saying all) do not associate with people outside their belief. 72% of Unitarians are college graduates. They tend to be very welcoming of all beliefs or lack thereof and are often not only friends with people who believe different than them but also willing to marry outside of their belief. Is there a link between college education and acceptance of those who aren't exactly like us? Does a college education make some people more open to other ideas?

    It almost seems there is a correlation between being educated and closing down the spiritual portion of our brain. Do we teach how not to feel? But the comment claim of the JW versus Unitarian suggests much more to it.
