The study was carried out to compare levels of psychopathology among three groups, namely Pastors, Patients and Police men: 60 participants made up of 30 males and 30 females from each group were administered Stress Checklist 90 SCI - 90 and Religious Affiliation scale. Although, a 2 x 3 ANOVA showed significant group difference across the variables and significant sex difference in anxiety and depression, no significant difference in anxiety and depression, no significant difference existed between pairs of groups on many of the psychopathological conditions, as revealed by Scheffes multiple range tests. Pastors and Policemen were similar to mental patients on some of the variables. The result was discussed on the light of this finding.
