No, an Ohio State Class Did Not Teach That Christians Are Dumber Than Atheists

According to an article on the conservative site Campus Reform, a recent online quiz for a Psychology 1100 class at The Ohio State University asked students:

Theo has an IQ of 100 and Aine has an IQ of 125. Which of the following statements [would] you expect to be true?

– Aine is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.
– Aine earns less money than Theo.
– Theo is more liberal than Aine.
– Theo is an atheist, while Aine is a Christian.

Correct answer? Aine (with a higher IQ) is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.

Assuming nothing here is doctored, it just strikes me as a horribly written, too-simplified-to-be-useful question.
