Religiosity and liking Christians among Jews

As a follow-up to the last post, I wondered what the relationship is between religiosity and warmth toward Christians among Jews.

Pearson correlations (sample size = 83)

Religious attendance-warmth toward Catholics .05
Religious attendance-warmth toward Protestants .02

While more religious Christians tend to like Jews more, religiosity among Jews does not predict liking Christians.

While we're at it, let's look at means among Jews:

Mean warmth

Protestants 60.1
Catholics 61.9

The mean for white Protestants toward Jews is 61.9; it's 65.4 for white Catholics. So Christian-Jewish warmth is similar in both directions.
