A new report has found that children from religious households are meaner than their secular counterparts. These findings were the result of an international study conducted by seven universities across six different nations. They were described in a paper titled "The Negative Association Between Religiousness and Children’s Altruism Across the World," published in Current Biology last week. The study is meant to challenge the idea that believing in God is necessary for having a sense of morality (which 53% of adults believe to be true).
