The answer, obviously, is more study

This made me smile wickedly...
The point I’m trying to make is this: There are plenty of ways to understand this data beyond a victory for one side or the other in the church’s internal culture wars. These results deserve to be studied carefully and dispassionately, without leaping to conclusions about which political or theological agenda, if any, they support.

Yeah. That's the ticket. More study. What's obviously needed is for some group of religious, say a subcommittee of the LCWR, to form a working group and study the study. To see how best to interpret it in accordance with the, errr...lived experience of the subjects...

you guys just get right on that.
