Thanks for taking the time to set up the link to the map and the list. I wonder if the distinction is as much a result of the organizational structure as it is what's taught by the different churches. The RCC is a hierarchy with a papal monarch. Protestant churches are either congregational in structure, or semi autonomous.

You're welcome. I created the list in post #1, but the rankings are taken from Transparency.org (there were a handful of discrepancies with the livemint article), and the religious affiliations and quotes/excerpts are from the livemint article. Only those countries mentioned in the article, wherein a religious affiliation is named, were included in my list. I have no idea what methodology was used re assigning affiliation to a country.
