Hispanics most likely to have altered their religious views in response to the Da Vinci Code

Via World Magazine Blog, concerning news from the The Barna Group 's nationwide survey on Dan Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code:
...the book has impacted millions of lives – but changes few beliefs. One out of every five adults has read the book but only 5% - which represents about two million adults – said that they changed any of the pre-existing beliefs or religious perspectives because of the book’s content.

The survey finds that the people most likely to have altered their religious views in response to the book’s content were Hispanics (who comprise 17% of the book’s readers), women (three times more likely than male readers to do so), and liberals (twice as likely as conservatives).
I recomend this resources--both in English and in Spanish--targeted at youth. It provides good answers to the questions the Da Vinci Code presents.
