Using General Social Survey data, I calculated the relationship between attending religious services and cheating on your spouse for people of various religions. (The sample is whites only, except in the case of Hindus).

Buddhists, Hindus, and people with no religion who are active in religious activities are just as likely to cheat as those who never attend.
