-Religious Folks More Tolerant and Open-Minded Than Atheists?

by Dr. D ~ July 3rd, 2017


A new study in Europe confirms what most Christians already know. Religious folks are actually more tolerant and open-minded than most think and even more so than atheists.    From the Blaze:

A new study has upended long-held assumptions that religious people are more closed-minded and intolerant than atheists.

The study, conducted by Dr. Filip Uzarevic, a researcher at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, revealed that while atheists might consider themselves open-minded than religious folk, they are actually less tolerant of differing opinions.  …

Uzarevic’s analysis determined that religious believers “seem to better perceive and integrate diverging perspectives.”

The paper, which explored whether atheists are “undogmatic,” claims that nonbelievers measured lower than religious people in “self-reported dogmatism” but were actually rated higher in “subtly-measured intolerance.”

Response: Interesting research. The recent attacks by the secular media and all of the whining and riotous protests from the left since the election of President Trump surely prove that conservative folks are far more tolerant and open minded than those on the left. Particularly with how we put up with and reacted to 8 years of Obama’s leftist extremism. Then there is the attempts to shut down all conservative and religious speech on college and university campuses.

Also, all of the attacks by activist atheists in recent years against crosses and non-denominational prayers, and military chaplains have gone a long ways towards showing who the most intolerant folks in America really are.               *Top
