A study we conducted, led by psychologist Will Gervais , found widespread and extreme moral prejudice against atheists around the world. Across all continents, people assumed that those who committed immoral acts, even extreme ones such as serial murder, were more likely to be atheists. Although this was the first demonstration of such bias at a global scale, its existence is hardly surprising. Survey data show that Americans are less trusting of atheists than of any other social group. For most politicians, going to church is often the best way to garner votes, and coming out as an unbeliever could well be political suicide.

He concludes that a more modest and pragmatic understanding of human rights may therefore strengthen rather than weaken their authority and future influence.
Religion and Morality
Morality and religion involves the relationship between religious views and morals. Many [ quantify ] religions have value frameworks regarding personal behavior meant to guide adherents in determining between right and wrong. Many religious systems share tenets with secular value-frameworks such as consequentialism , freethought , and utilitarianism. Religion and morality are not synonymous. Morality does not necessarily depend upon religion, despite some making "an almost automatic assumption" to this effect. Conceptually and in principle, morality and a religious value system are two distinct kinds of value systems or action guides.
The relation between law, morality, and religion in the West has grown progressively more complex and fragmented over the last five hundred years.

Не дождавшись ответа, он вошел. Типичная для Испании туалетная комната: квадратная форма, белый кафель, с потолка свисает единственная лампочка. Как всегда, одна кабинка и один писсуар.
