    QUOTE:  "Last year, in the International Journal for the Psychology of Religion, Prof Shariff reported that undergraduate students were more likely to cheat when they believe in a forgiving God than a punishing God."

    QUOTE: Why criminals believe in heaven: People who trust in redemption more likely to break the law than those who think there's a hell. Research in the US finds higher crime rates in nations where most people believe in punishment in the afterlife

    Well that rather puts a bit of a contradiction to the Christian claim that they don't sin as much as atheists do. Of course, the atheist criminal population per capita is the lowest in the world. Christian criminal population per capita is very high... Now we know why. People who believe that they are forgiven do more bad things... … liefs.html
