God is Not Good for Children and Other Living Things

I missed this when it first came out, but reader Weldon kindly forwarded it to me. (Thanks, Weldon.=)

According to a paper published in the U.S. based Journal of Religion and Society,
Many Americans agree that their churchgoing nation is an exceptional, God-blessed, shining city on the hill that stands as an impressive example for an increasingly sceptical world.

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.
On another note, I might take a look at The Cedar and Brokeback Mountains | Heroic Passions or "I'm Not No Queer". Interesting journal.

What do you think? Will we be better off if and as the world's interest in god wanes?
