Chapter 3 presents results from the analyses at the macro level. Bivariate patterns show that, at the global level, there is a strong connection between religion and democracy. Historically, Protestant countries have been clearly more democratic than countries where other religions dominate but today, the crucial dividing line is the one that separates Christian countries from other countries. These tendencies persist when control variables are introduced in regression models. However, when analyses are conducted within separate geographical contexts, religion loses much of its explanatory power, suggesting that the link between religion and democracy is strongly affected when religions are ‘exported’ from their birthplaces to other continents.
