    Are you looking for something like this?

    In "The New Criminology", Max D. Schlapp and Edward E. Smith say that two generations of statisticians found that the ratio of convicts without religious training is about 1/10 of 1%.  W. T. Root, professor of psychology at the Univ. of Pittsburgh, examined 1,916 prisoners and said "Indifference to religion, due to thought, strengthens character," adding that Unitarians, Agnostics, Atheists and Free-Thinkers are absent from
    penitentiaries or nearly so.

       During 10 years in Sing-Sing, those executed for murder were 65% Catholics, 26% Protestants, 6% Hebrew, 2% Pagan, and less than 1/3 of 1% non-religious.

       Steiner and Swancara surveyed Canadian prisons and found 1,294 Catholics, 435 Anglicans, 241 Methodists, 135 Baptists, and 1 Unitarian.

       Dr. Christian, Superintendant of the NY State Reformatories, checked 22,000 prison inmates and found only 4 college graduates.  In "Who's Who" 91% were college graduates, and he commented that "intelligence and knowledge produce right living" and that "crime is the offspring of superstition and ignorance."

        I think all religions are incorrect. Some are good some are not. Atheists are also religious. Therefore question is irrelevant. Someone is born in barn does not make him donkey or cow. If someone is criminal is criminal and not Catholic or Anglican.

          I think he was saying psychologically, religious influences play a huge role in the criminal mind.  So yes, even in anti-religious thoughts... religion is still the foundation of what seems to be some sort of paranoia which leads to extreme behavior as a result of a) fear and b) lack of fear. 

          So take from it what you will but two things stand out in this very brief sentiment.  Fear based religion causes psychosis. big_smile

    LOL, no offense, but this stats is seriously flawed and skewed. smile

    First, many people tend to turn religious AFTER committing a serious crime like murder. So you need to count if they were religious at the time of crime, not in jail.

    Second, in most Western countries Christians constitute a vast majority of population, so numbers should be weighted relative to the percentage of the group in total population to be representative. As they are stated now, they bear no meaning. smile

    Even if religion doesn't kill you... it surely can leave a lasting scar.... My Dad's JW beliefs caused my parents to divorce... Is there topic here on how many couples break up due to clashes in religious beliefs?

      I did read a stat that presented Divorce Rates vs Religion.  Jews had the highest with Born Agains in a close second.  "Other Christians" came in third with "non-believers" having the lowest.

          The report I saw didn't break it down that far...but I'm sure there is a study out there somewhere.
