So atheists have no morals, eh?

Research studies show that:

  • Compared to religious people, non-believers are in general less prejudiced, anti-semitic, racist, dogmatic, ethnocentric, close-minded and authoritarian.
  • And, in general, non-religious people are more altruistic and supportive of women’s rights, gender equality, and gay rights.
  • Only 0.2% of prisoners in U.S. jails are atheists.
  • Murder and violent crime rates are higher in highly religious countries than in more secular countries.
  • And murder and violent crime rates are higher in highly religious U.S. states than in less religious U.S. states.

Right from wrong

You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong then you lack empathy, not religion. — Morgan Freeman
