“Guernsey and the other Channel Islands represent the last remnants of the medieval Dukedom of Normandy, which held sway in both France and England. The islands were the only British soil occupied by German troops in World War II. Guernsey is a British crown dependency but is not part of the UK or of the European Union. However, the UK Government is constitutionally responsible for its defense and international representation.”
CIA's The World Factbook (2013)5
My Social and Moral Development Index does not have enough data points for Guernsey to produce an accurate ranking. As a territory of the UK I do not have many specific statistics for this territory in its own right.
The CIA World Factbook has slightly different data, and states: Protestant (Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, Congregational, Methodist), Roman Catholic6.

There isn't much information in the database for Guernsey, most likely because it is either a part of another country (i.e., a territory or posession) and therefore most international statistics are counted for the country as a whole, or, this is such an exotic place that little data exists about it.
