    Study says religious belief contributes to social problems

    According to this article, from the Times, research published in the Journal of Religion and Society shows that religious beliefs can cause damage to a society:

    “In general, higher rates of belief in and worship of a creator correlate with higher rates of homicide, juvenile and early adult mortality, STD infection rates, teen pregnancy and abortion in the prosperous democracies. “The United States is almost always the most dysfunctional of the developing democracies, sometimes spectacularly so.”
