In response to Chris posting this graph, a reader writes:

Masturbation 'condemned in most cases' by Roman Catholicism?  When is it not condemned?  And homosexuality?  'Neutral or no clear position'?  What happened to 'objectively disordered'?  I think the Roman Catholics are red all the way on that chart, quite frankly.

I saw that chart awhile ago, noted the errors with regard to Catholicism, and decided the whole thing was suspect.
