In a large sample of full-time University of Pretoria main campus students it was� found� that� a very high percentage of all the students reported an affiliation to religious bodies. They also generally regarded themselves as religious.� Many also regularly took part in the religious programmes. Quite a rosy statistical picture could be drawn. The one worrying result is the� chasm� which� shows between what the students regard as their religious organisation�s views on certain moral issues, on� the one hand, and their own lifestyles, on the other.
