PostSubject: Religious Kids are "More Punitive" Than Their Nonreligious Peers, Says Study   Sun Nov 08, 2015 1:44 am

As the Bible says, "Judge not, that ye be not judged"



But science is paying no mind, conducting its own judging with a new study that found children who grew up in religious homes are habitually less generous and more judgmental than their secular or atheist counterparts. The study, published Thursday in scientific journal Current Biology, also concluded that religious families typically assumed they would register opposite results.

"Across all countries, parents in religious households reported that their children expressed more empathy and sensitivity for justice in everyday life than nonreligious parents," study authors wrote in the abstract. "However, religiousness was inversely predictive of children's altruism and positively correlated with their punitive tendencies. Together these results reveal the similarity across countries in how religion negatively influences children's altruism, challenging the view that religiosity facilitates prosocial behavior."
