Item #21436

Title:
Atheists tend to be seen as immoral – even by other atheists: study
Link:
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/aug/07/anti-atheist-prejudice-secularity
Excerpt:
Participants were given a description of a fictional evildoer who tortured animals as a child, then grows up to become a teacher who murders and mutilates five homeless people. Half of the group were asked how likely it was that the perpetrator was a religious believer, and the other half how likely he was an atheist. The team found that people were about twice as likely to assume that the serial killer was an atheist.
