Proof That Atheists are Immoral!

Here's a link that proves that atheists are immoral!

I mean, look at this!


Moral Behaviors of Evangelicals vs. Atheists
Sin   Evangelicals   Atheists
Viewing pornography   12%   50%
Profanity in public   16   60
Gambling   2   7
Gossiping   4   34
Sex with non-spouse   3   7
Retaliation   ?   11
Drunkenness   0.5   33
Lying      1       ?
Average   6   29

I mean, viewing pornography? Cussing? Having sex outside of marriage? Clearly these are hugely immoral behaviors these damned Satan-worshiping atheists are partaking in!

But wait! There's more!

Look at this graph:

Liberals A.K.A. God-less atheists tend to view in-group loyalty, authority, and purity as far less relevant to moral judgement than harm and fairness! Those sick bastards! Clearly purity, authority, and in-group loyalty are very, very important!

But, seriously. This site cracks me up. I know most people who visit that site will be Christian, but do they honestly see these as big moral issues?

The Magic Pudding

That's funny, it looks to me like the Liberals are comparatively good people.
What's wrong with these guys, can't they read a simple table?

What's funny to me is that I'm not even disputing the statistics, although I'm almost sure they're not entirely accurate.

I'm surprised that a single Evangelical admitted to viewing pornography. I'm curious as to how this survey was taken. It seems to have a lot of ?'s rather than numbers, which makes me question its validity.

Besides, the only of these behaviors that I would usually consider immoral is lying.

I agree, and even the immorality of lying I would question. Most lies people tell are "white lies", which are generally acceptable to me.

Recusant

Hmm.  Though I don't have any strong evidence to back up the following, it only makes sense in light of the information presented by the impeccable source cited in the OP:

The fact that atheists make up a disproportionately small percentage of the US prison population can be explained by the well known sneaky and devious behavior of atheists.  They're just better at getting away with their crimes is all.  The possible link between atheism and intelligence probably has something to do with this as well.  If true, it could be inferred that atheists make cleverer criminals, and therefore are less likely to get caught.  Don't worry though, God will sort them out when they all go to Hell! :devil:

Atheists gossip more than evangelicals?   lol
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

Yeah, that one sounded off to me, too.

I thought this was a parody site, though?
NVM, I looked a the rest of the site more closely; it seems to be sincere.

Methinks the "lying" statistic for Evangelicals should be a smidge higher. Say like, oh I don't know, maybe 50 points or so.  ;)

Yeah, I think the only thing the survey really tells us is that religious people lie a lot more than atheists.

Do correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't the prison population only 2% Atheist?

Naughty naughty, theists.

I loved when Bush came out and said, "We are losing the war against drugs." You know what that implies? There's a war being fought, and the people on drugs are winning it.

I was thinking the same thing. This is where they're getting their data which is clearly biased, but that bias may only extend to how the researcher defines morality.

I think you're right, but it has been pointed out that sucking up to God in prison can shave significant amounts of time off one's sentence.
